Incredible
25 November 2007 | by tracyandbillSee all my reviews

This film blends everything you ever could imagine about a documentary feature. It makes you laugh one second and cry the next. As serious as the subject matter is, it leaves you feeling inspired and wanting to make a difference.

The approach to autism is comprehensive and educates you about its challenges in numerous ways. I couldn't possibly recommend this movie at a higher level. It's simply awesome.

Go see this film the first chance you get. If it doesn't come to your town, make sure to catch it on DVD when it gets released. You won't be disappointed.
