    When I found out that Fly Away is about a mother and her autistic teenage daughter, I just had to see it. I thought it was powerful, emotional, and heartbreaking. This is like the female version of Rain Man.

    A realistic portrayal of a mid-functioning autistic girl, and of the toll it takes on her increasingly desperate single mother. The actress who plays Mandy does a really believable job showing the difficulties of autism. The film's simplistic ending implies a solution has been found, but the problems are clearly still there. The story line was just ok, in my opinion. I have seen better dramas.

    This film is all right for what it is, but still pretty stereotypical about what Autism actually is. Ashley Rickards is a good actress, but the rest of the acting from the others is awkward at times.

    let me explain this real quick... just because a movie is about a handicapped person doesn't mean it's automatically a good movie, however the critics seem to disagree. to be honest this was rather dull predictable and uneventful but it gets high rating because of the subject matter.

    This movie portrays the very real struggles parents face in raising autistic children. It was a little slow and redundant, but that seemed for the most part to be the intent.

    Even though she's autistic, the full retard theory applies here, and as expected, it doesn't really work out.
