5.0 out of 5 stars a truly lovely film that deals with aspergers syndrome and autism with great sympathy and realism, 10 Feb. 2011

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mozart and the Whale [DVD] (DVD)
i loved this film i only bought it because it was recommended when i bought nell starring jodi foster and am i ever glad i did, i think its one of the most moving and emotional film dramas i have watched in the last year and its moved on to my must keep list as i know i will watch this truly wonderful film again and again
right now to the film it has a run time of just over 90 minuetes and the drama starts right from the start of the film when we are introduced to both lead actors who should have won oscars for their acting in this film
the film co stars donald {josh hartnett} who suffers from aspergers, he is a high functioning autistic who is a whiz with anything to do with numbers and can in fact read computer script and can pick up anomelies that a computer misses, the other co star is isabelle (radha mitchell) another high functioning austic who tells the group therapy session, comprised of other autistic people run by donald that at 14 she was hitching a lift and she was raped, she went onto to describe her feeling of aloneness and her difficulty in forming relationships with others as she shocks them and scares them away
this is a beautiful film which really touches the heart and portrays autism and aspergers with great sensitivty and emotion, showing a couple who are challenged by everyday life fall in love and relate to one another, it dosnt try and diminish their struggle but shows it in every detail but this realism lends so much to the film im sure like me you will be cheering at the screen willing them to end up together and stay together, i was drawn into this film and didnt look away from the screen from begining to end, a powerful film that i dont think i could ever forget
