When David Wilson's young wife falls victim to cancer, he is left a single working dad with the sole responsibility of caring for his sixth grade son with autism. Patrick, who prefers to be called 'Po,' is a gifted but challenged child who was very close to his mother and unable to communicate his own sense of loss. As father and son struggle to deal with life after mom, they each begin to withdraw into their own worlds. David into the high pressure job he's close to losing and Po drifting away from the school where he's bullied into his magical fantasy world, the Land of Color, where he's just a typical carefree boy with a rich cast of other worldly companions. The growing divide between father and son and the challenges of single parenthood of a special needs child threaten to separate David and Po permanently. Based on a true story, the bonds of love between a grieving father and son are tested in the most real way in Po.
Please stop with that irritating piano music in tv-movies, nobody likes it.
Why this movie would win any awards, let alone twelve, is a mystery to me. From the first minutes you get that awful feeling this movie is made for Lifetime. I was actually surprised it wasn't. That typical horrible piano music you get in every scene, it's just cringing to hear, it's a basic signature for lousy Lifetime or Hallmark tv-movies. the story is also typical, we got to learn a life lesson here, but first let's fill the movie with mediocre and unnecessary scenes. You won't hear me saying that some passages aren't worth watching, the ones about autism and the imaginary world they live in were interesting to watch, but for example when the autist disappears after calling a taxi that comes pick him up at the special needs school, driving him far away and that without getting paid and without warning the police, that's the kind of stupid scenes that bring down a story that could have been good. Julian Feder did a decent job playing his character, he's the best actor of this movie. His father played by Christopher Gorham is the opposite, mediocre acting, just the kind you would expect for a tv-movie. It's not because it's a dramatic movie about autism that it's going to be good. There are wonderful movies about autism, but A Boy Called Po isn't one of them.
