Windy hits close to home
13 March 2015 | by ckl-55922See all my reviews

This film had a clear message that really hits close to home. I was excited to see this film after reading about it on social media. I finally had the chance to screen it and I was not disappointed.

The story follows an autistic man with a very special gift who struggles to get his voice heard and the results are tragic. Being the parent of an autistic adult, I was especially curious to see this story and also how the main character was portrayed. I was captivated by Shannon Brown's portrayal of "Windy". It was so spot on that I forgot I was watching a movie; a truly brilliant performance by what had to be one of the most challenging roles an actor can play.

Gail Hafar, who plays the female lead, was very strong as "Dr. Evelyn". She plays Windy's primary doctor and is quite believable. Strong supporting performances by the supporting cast as well.

The film was beautifully shot, my only gripe would be the ending. I was a bit confused and I'm afraid the director may have tried to get a bit too fancy instead of just letting the story and the performances carry the film home on its own merits.

Shannon Brown's performance is enough to give this film a 10 by itself, but the direction forces me to bring the score down to an 8 out of 10. It is still definitely worth checking out, especially if you know someone with autism.
