Please Stand By Reviews
An autistic girl with an unbelievable talent for storytelling attempts to personally deliver her entry for a Star Trek contest. This somehow gave me a Little Miss Sunshine vibe. Must have been Toni Collette.
Dakota Fanning, Alice Eve, Patton Oswalt, and Toni Collette
even a special needs kid shows a lot of creativity, passion and potential
Fanning is so excellent playing a girl who needs monitoring but wants so badly to win a Star Trek script contest for $100,000 so she wont burden her sister anymore and so she can be close to her niece
after their mother died her sister took her in as long as she could
for Wendy she feels so much like Spock meaning that it's hard for her to express her emotions and be more logical and articulate than most
she runs away to submit her script braving her own independence
'the purpose of the universe is to conquer it, not be afraid of it'
she's boldly going where she hasn't before and even her sister is amazed by how resourceful she is
having autism or not Wendy is still very talented
this almost made me tear up at one point, too
it's one of her best performances to date
Oh, and if you have ever loved Star Trek, you might like this movie, too.
