Brilliant film and insight into the lives of others
24 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Fantastic!!!!! Loved it. What a film, thank you for showing it.

Shame it's not on general release as others would do well to see this excellent film into special needs.

Just left me wanting to know more that happened after the trip!! Well done also to the brother and sister who made this happen.

Made me cry as my son has autism, hope his brother looks after him so well when they are older. Would love to do the same thing when he,s older, but his obsession is red phone boxes, so that is easier to arrange!!

Excellent film. More please ......

Can't wait for the DVD
