An amazing documentary!
15 November 2016 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

Informative and touching. Asperger's Are Us hits the mark right on the nose.

Very uncompromising in approach, I can sense the realness to it, as it was very raw and very unpolished.

Four young men with Asperger's become friends and start a comedy troupe . The movie takes place as the troop prepares for it's last show.

I feel like I got to learn a lot about autism from a group of people who actually have and can explain it, which is a better way to learn.

But most importantly, I got to know these four dudes on a personal level. One of my favorite parts of the film was when one of the subjects, New Micheal, compared them to the Beatles where as Noah, who is a little older and more Experience dealing with the world around him seems like the John of the group, New Micheal, who I respect for being so open with his insecurities, wants everyone to known he's the Paul of the group. It was a great leg to start the movie off in explaining the interaction between these two.

The documentary is amazing in the fact that it does nothing to make these guys better than they already are. It was important to see them living normal lives like normal human beings to completely understand what it's like to have Asperger's.

Very well done.
