Trivia

When she is saying how to get to work she says go down Page Street and turn on Buchanan. This is in the Lower Height neighborhood, but the shot with Golden Gate Bridge in the background is in the Marina District. Buchanan does go to Market Street, but the shot they use is closer to downtown. The next shot of her getting on the bus is no where near Market Street. There is also no bus that goes from Market Street to Stoneston Galleria. She would have to transfer. See more »

Brilliant heart felt movie
29 January 2018 | by derek2407See all my reviews

Not sure which movie the two who slated this movie watched but I thought Dakota was as great. I've lived with an autistic person and it's so difficult to get it right because they are all different. This is a good feel movie and was directed perfectly.
