Close to my heart
3 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this on TV over the Christmas period.And i've got to say how brilliant this film was.Having an autistic child i was expecting the TV soap opera approach.How wrong was i.

So many things in this hit like a hammer.Situations both myself and my wife have been though.Screaming in the street,People staring in disgust,Trying to buy new shoes.....The list is endless.

Well made and acted.A truly amazing story.This film must be on your 'To watch List'

If only we had a DVD release.

Remember you don't need a wheel chair to be disabled.
