There are so many great things about this film:
- The film gives an accurate account of how a child on the spectrum deals with emotional issues.
- And it gives such a beautiful account on how a mother has to find a way to understand her son's thinking to help him find closure with his Dad's death.
- Many kids on the spectrum lack social filters. This film exemplifies that.
- People with ASD have individual, particular, sensory issues. And they are very real. We experience their realness with the main character, Oskar.
- What I love most about this film is the parents and grandmother's love for Oskar. They treat him with respect and understanding.
It's a beautiful story.
