there may not be feelings in outer space, but there are quite a few in this movie
Even before Andreas Öhman's "I rymden finns inga känslor" (called "Simple Simon" in English) identified its protagonist as someone with Asperger's, I noticed that he displayed a number of the characteristics: intense focus on a topic, awkward communication, and preference for structured, unchanging schedules. Sweden's submission to the 83 Academy Awards does an excellent job depicting Asperger's without turning it into a joke, although it does manage to be funny. With his role as Simon here and his role as Pennywise in last year's "It", Bill Skarsgård is showing himself to be a fine thespian. I recommend it.
PS: keep watching after the credits.
