Superb movie, my favourite for 2018 so far!
30 January 2018 | by HarootSee all my reviews

So before I make my armchair movie critic contribution I have to say that the review given by one particular gentleman is absolutely pathetic. I am certain beyond a shadow of a doubt that English is his second language and going by his grammar, very poor at it too! Now the movie. I have been a Dakota Fanning fan since I saw her first in Man on Fire. A naturally talented actress whose talents just grew with her as she grew herself. I found nothing wrong with the movie, the acting, story-line, cinematography and the directing was perfectly fine. This is a movie that highlights the fact that autism is not a handicap and in fact a lot of people with autism have some sort of hidden talents. I highly recommend this movie.
