Gods Ears is a story about an erotic dancer, Alexia, who falls in love with a man with autism, Noah. On the face of it, this plot line might seem like a movie that's tapped into the exponential rise in autism. However, this story, brilliantly written and directed by Michael Worth, touches deftly upon issues of women, self-esteem, and the isolating conditions of people in two completely different but equally hidden worlds--the hidden world of sex workers and the less hidden world of people with autism.
Alexia, working in the sex industry, her perspective on men soured by her job, can't seem to find her way out. When she encounters Noah in a restaurant, he can barely look at her, not because she's beautiful, and she is, but because it's simply just too painful to gaze upon a face, any face. His autism, though seen as a handicap by others, is the condition that causes him to "see" Alexia not as a sex object, but as she wishes to see herself--as good and worthy to be loved just as she is. He captures her attention and her heart. It would seem an unlikely meeting, but Worth creatively draws the parallels of human loneliness and longing that bring these two people together in an unforgettably touching story of the heart.
