True story of a severely autistic child and his parents' struggles to cope with his affliction. Kyle (Andrew Byrne) was born with severe autism and, as his mother Nicola (Keely Hawes) determinedly throws her life into caring for his needs, a rift appears between her and Rob, (Ben Miles) her husband. Nicola only has her parents, Pat and Jim to rely on in her efforts to reach through the thick fog of autism into Kyle's heart, as they are also absolutely doted on Kyle and his wellbeing. When the family gets a Labrador pup, Thomas, there are signs that his innocent, pure canine heart might be reaching out to Kyle in ways that even the greatest human love cannot achieve. When Grandma Pat passes away, the family must solidify to overcome their grief but when Thomas becomes ill and looks like following Pat, Kyle's progress is threatened.
The true story of Kyle Graham: a six-year-old boy suffering from severe autism; a condition that has put a huge strain on the marriage of his parents, Rob and Nicola. Nicola has refused to be beaten by her sons affliction, devoting the majority of her time to coming to terms with it, thus creating a rift with her husband. Out of the darkness comes a shimmering chance of hope in the shape of Thomas, a golden retriever puppy. Can Kyles new-found friendship break into a world where all else has failed? After Thomas is by turns gritty, warm and funny, but above all else is a realistic insight into every parents worst nightmare.

If you have a passion for Autism these are the films for you!
The story of a family, whose son Kyle was born with severe autism. Kyle's behaviour ranges from sullen silence to kicking and screaming tantrums - he cannot interact with others, he cannot show love towards his parents.
Follow the family's frustrations - from the lack of understanding of outside observers to dealing with medical and other authorities.
A visit to friends with dogs has Kyle communicating with the dogs in a way that he cannot with people. A golden retriever puppy, Thomas, so named because of Kyle's obsession with Thomas the Tank Engine, joins the family. Thomas's devotion allows Kyle to communicate and open up, first to Thomas, then to his family.
It is very moving to follow the progress made by Kyle, and you could feel the joy of his parents as he starts to express his emotions and feelings.
This is based on 'a friend like henry', the true story of the Gardner family. I would suggest reading the book first, (where the dog is named Henry, and the boy is Dale!)
A Friend Like Henry
Both book and DVD are delightful
Excellent, highly recommended - a box of tissues needed!
I found myself laughing and crying along with this film and enjoying the connection the boy builds with the dog which in turn triggers other changes. It also shows the power of having supportive and understanding people around to help and advise. If you're interested in Autism or human-dog companionship then this is a must see. If you aren't then its still worth watching!
In fact, this film was based on a book about an autistic kid named Dale and a dog named after his favourite Thomas character 'Henry'
In the film, it takes place in the year 1993 and I was like 'wow!' (but I never expect anything from the 1990's like that nowadays, even though the film is made in 2006... I just don't know how.)
The plot starts with Kyle Graham has to struggle with a disability of severe condition of autism, and his parents couldn't know what to do to handle this. Until a solution came as an answer to fix their problems with their son, comes a golden retriever dog named after the popular TV series character 'Thomas the Tank Engine'.
Honestly I have never seen this film, but I heard it had premièred on ITV in Boxing Day 2006 and has eventually been released on DVD in 2007. Now I have the DVD for Christmas and watched it.
Overall, the film is really good to watch despite having some tear jerking moments.
Again I would give it 7.1/10.
