Moving Forward
21 August 2018 | by mcguirk193See all my reviews

An honest and direct portrayal of the magical moments one year for a team of swimmers and their parents. Day to day life as an autistic kid isn't easy so it's compelling to watch as the boys lose their cares while swimming and amaze their parents at how they excel in the pool. The film also deals with the boys' transition into adult life and the difficulties they face. But most of all, seeing the strength of the parents as they supported and encouraged their sons every step of the way was inspiring. Started watching this on TV one night and stayed up way later than I intended!
