Trivia

The film's screenplay was co-written by Sia and children's book author Dallas Clayton based on a one-page story that she had written in 2007. Sia decided to direct the film after co-directing the music video for "Chandelier" in 2014 in which, in her own words, she felt "a little bit braver" and "pretty good" at directing. See more »

This was an absolute yikes. Sis has Maddie Ziegler trapped in a gilded cage as she forces her to act as a caricature of an autistic person. If you are autistic, the movie itself may over stimulate you, so be prepared.
