Lou Taylor Pucci,
The movie really normalizes the experience of raising a child with special needs (and believe me, I know) and helps us to see the unique and wonderful qualities of each child, beyond the autism diagnosis. With more children being diagnosed on the autism spectrum each year, this is an important and timely movie which will help those families impacted directly, as well as the broader society. Like mental health issues in "Girl, Interrupted" this film shreds light on a subject area that needs more public awareness. And it does so without being overly sentimental. I recommend that families go together to see this documentary.
