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.

I only wish there were more scenes interviewing the kids (the one with Wyatt was groundbreaking). As a fellow autistic person, the movie is like the subjects in it: not oridinary, but extra-ordinary.

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