The harrowing true account of Steven Stayner, who was kidnapped by a perverted pseudo-priest and his lackey during the 1970s. As he gets older, he realizes that he needs to try to make an escape and get back home.
Set during WWII, a story seen through the innocent eyes of Bruno, the eight-year-old son of the commandant at a German concentration camp, whose forbidden friendship with a Jewish boy on the other side of the camp fence has startling and unexpected consequences.
Over the last few years I have developed an interest in working with children on the Autistic Spectrum. I have found all forms of Autism to be the most interesting, complex and distressing conditions a child and their family have to experience and cope with.
I watched this film for the first time on TV last night. I thought it was an excellent portrayal of the difficulties experienced by those affected by ASD.
I am hoping that lots of people watched and that peoples insight to the awareness and understanding of Autism is broadened through this superb production.
