The actual autistic people were given no consideration towards this book and movie about them, none were consulted at all. They should have been especially since 'awareness' is now created. Terribly skewed awareness from only one point of view. See more »
I had very high expectations about this film and I was pleasantly rewarded. The story-line was just brilliant. The story speaks very close to home as much of what was portrayed I found relatable, heartbreaking, entertaining, inspiring and thought provoking.
I normally have a large popcorn when watching movies and finish it within the first hour, but in this case my popcorn was more than half at the end. I can't remember the last time I paid this much attention to a movie.
I would hate to single out characters as every character portrayed was executed perfectly.
This film speaks volumes. I'm very happy that I got a chance to view something so real, raw and beautiful.
