  • As flip and gaudy as that title might sound, this spare little movie is actually one of the most candid, down-to-earth, organically inspirational documentaries you'll ever see.

  • It's an eyes-wide-open account of tenacity and triumph for parents and children alike. Considering the dramatic rise in the number of children born with autism, it's a film that everyone should see and appreciate.

Audience Reviews for Autism: The Musical

    Troubled but completely adorable kids with autism are compelled to star in a musical by well meaning adults. Happiness is found by both who comply and rebel. Both are unforgettable.

    You know that a film is great, when he inspires and move the audience. Fresh.

    My wife (who works with an autistic teen) made me watch this. Autism the Musical definitely makes you think about the way that autism is currently regarded and proves that there are very alive people under a sometimes distant exterior--as shown through the 5 main kids highlighted in this documentary. I felt kind of bad for some of the kids in more ways than one (some of these parents were annoying as all hell--I know they've got the best interests of the kids at heart, BUT STILL!) The fact that they seemed to mostly focus on affluent families (the son of Stephen Stills, the son of a former Playboy modem) was kind of a turn off since 1 in 150 kids are diagnosed with autism and the odds of them being rich aren't as good. In the end if you know are are related to to someone autistic this is essential viewing, but if you're not or aren't interested don't bother.
