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 »

classic autistic drama
28 January 2018 | by bond_3545See all my reviews

The movie seems good. It's a classic story where the main character is autistic and struggles through life. The character presentation has been done excellent. Cast fits the characters perfectly. Dakota Fanning does an excellent job portraying an autistic woman in a young age. A feel good movie to watch and enjoy in free time.
