  • This deeply moving but thankfully unsentimental doc is both inspiring and depressing.

    September 9, 2013 | Full Review…
  • It spotlights an important issue yet never seeks to squeeze the truth into an easily digestible narrative frame. Instead it expands its storytelling to the boundaries of messy, joyful and painful reality.

    September 6, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Apart from a few, briskly factual titles, there are no editorial intrusions here - no yammering experts, no pontificating activists, no sappy sentimental music.

    September 6, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • [Inserts] the viewer into the overwhelming experience of teaching, parenting, even being an underprivileged young adult with autism.
