News & Interviews for The A Word: Season 2
Bowker's approach even at this point was to keep things light. It requires writing of great tact and a lot of skill to do so.
A gentle, intelligent drama about autism, family and love.
The entire cast is excellent, especially Vento and the actors who portray his parents, Lee Ingleby and Morven Christie.
In its way, The A Word is every bit as good a family drama as, say, This Is Us. Its use of a diverse cast with multiple generations of family members is skillful; its tone switches between laughter and tears without seeming excessively manipulative.
Not having a child with autism I don't feel qualified to say whether The A Word's portrayal of the disorder and its impact on the family is accurate. As a piece of drama, though, it was compelling and unexpectedly cheering.
