I am no expert on Asperger's, but this is a very well done movie. This movie isn't about mozart or a whale but rather 2 people who happen to have Asperger's. Acting was great from the two lead roles, in particular from Donald played by Josh Hartnett. My only complaint was how it was slightly choppy at times, where time passed and we kinda had to figure that out. Well worth your time. 87 of 100.
The movie isn't horrible, but its laboring. It is trying to make a very simple and beautiful point, but do I really have to see 100 different ways of Queen Latifah living the high life in order to make that point? The movie could have been cut down considerably and been much more interesting.
