User Review

Perfect Portrayal of an Autistic Spectrum Disorder Child

Rating: 10/10


I have read a LOT of reviews from people who seem to know absolutely
nothing about children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders. Thomas Horn
did an excellent job portraying one. He was very moving in everything
he did! I know he did a great job because I have two children with the
disorder and he fit perfectly between their two levels of autism. Does
he have big beautiful eyes… sure. Don't knock the kid because he
looks good. He was spot on with his acting! This story has you feeling
all sorts of emotions and by the end of the movie we had all shed a lot
of tears. And the tears were caused by what the child was doing to
handle his grief and understand why his dad was taken away from him and
NOT because it had anything to do with 9/11. My son had lost his mom
and the movie brought back all sorts of emotions because he could
relate to the child perfectly. This movie has replaced Billy Elliot on
my list of most moving story. Not everyone can enjoy this kind of
loving and sophisticated story so it might not be for everyone but if
you have a heart and have ever lost a parent, I am sure that you will
love this movie! Another moving story brought to us by Stephen Daldry!
