I had the privilege of attending the Opening Gala of a truly memorable, touching movie that deserves our special attention.
The totally convincing, sensitive performance of Rhys Bevan-John as William - effortlessly draws you into the life and challenges of an Autistic young man who rises beyond his limitations and circumstances with the help of compassionate, understanding friends played by Christina Cuffari, Cory Bowles and Sarah D. McCarthy. We witness his struggles - as well as those of his close friends - and the solutions they find through mutual love and understanding.
We soon realize, that there is a little of William in all of us. That feelings of being different, feeling inadequate or unwanted at times are not unique to Autism but are parcel and parcel of the human condition needing to be dealt with - lovingly and compassionately - Touching, motivating, uplifting - A must see.
