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.
John Asher and Julian Feder along with the original music from Burt Bacharach have created a film that is like no other. The cinematography, script, and brilliant acting all come together to show the world what autism is really like. The result is a truly honest film that shows the joys as well as the struggles of having an autistic child. John Asher was able to accurately show us how an autistic person lives and the beautiful world only they can see. One that is often so hard for them to share with the world. Using correct terminology to explain what autism is and how it affects someone, the film can help a viewer understand autism more fully. The relationships created through out the film are honest with reality and move the story along at the perfect rate. Centered around such an important topic, the film is both bold and gentle. It has times of comic relief, but be sure to bring some tissues.
I highly, highly recommend seeing this movie. It is one that will change the way this world sees autism.
