-Excerpt from full review at TheRoamingLife.com-

Roaming is the story of a man named William setting out to create his own independence, albeit at a much later age than most. It follows his story as he tries to get a job, the struggles he encounters with room-mates as he leaves his father's house, and perhaps most importantly, his foray into love and dating for the first time.

Not an easy path for anyone, and as is demonstrated early on, even more difficult for a mildly-autistic Will.

As if to curb criticisms, the film offers a very specific view on Will's behavioural condition, in that he is undiagnosed, and simply considered "different". At first, he does not seem interested in finding out more, and being treated as a patient to find his exact place on the 'autism spectrum'. Like many changing aspects of his life, it is a pivotal plot point that he eventually seems to understand himself enough to know his own fate in this regard, even if it's left up to the viewer to make their own judgments.

Fox does a solid job with the direction, keeping the pace and storyline moving, and offering slow tender moments when needed. The entire cinematic experience reminded me very much of perfectly paced and emotionally charged "Dear Frankie". Although, the small budget and limited experience does show through sometimes with the film wavering between looking fully-polished to quite-indie. However the subject is one that we can all reflect upon either finding similarities in ourselves, or in our loved ones who struggle with the same issues. In that way it is approachable to all.

Roaming is about much more than the perspective of adulthood, relationships and life as a whole when living with autism. It offers us the option to reflect on ourselves, how we relate and communicate with others.
