Must watch
27 December 2006 | by tracy-gilsonSee all my reviews

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.
