Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Snow Cake [DVD]  (DVD)
I have an autistic daughter also high functioning and was impressed with the accuracy of a lot of the character's behaviour, however, just with Rain Man, it is easy to fall into the trap of thinking that this character typifies an autistic person. All autistic people are just as much individuals as the rest of us and their behaviour will reflect that. Autism is a spectrum, some people function well on their own, others need help.
I think it is brilliant that at last someone as tackled the topic of autism on the big screen. Only one disappointing thing, the soundtrack is unavailable to buy, the music is fantastic!!!!
