      A brilliant honest depiction of Aspergers

      I hadn't heard of this film before and actually first saw it listed on an Asperger's Support Website as part of the "Films About People with Asperger's" section. I have read many books about Aspergers and I myself scored 180/200 on the AQ (Aspergers diagnosis test- where any score over 35/200 indicates non neuro typcial and the prevalence of Aspergers)- so I had a vested interest in seeking this film.

      After tracking it down to buy which was quite hard to do as it is quite rare despite Josh Hartnett being in one of the starring roles, I found the film's depiction of people with Asperger's Syndrome scarily accurate in a positive way.

      The movie is a True Story centralling around two main characters, both diagnosed with Asperger's, how they first meet at an Aspergers support group and how their relationship unfolds in the context of these regular meetings and how they cope alone and when put together with both of their varying symptoms.

      It is as beautiful as it is raw and honest yet it also has a belly laugh comedy element. It shows how no two people with Asperger's are the same and how they find ways to cope with their condition. This is an important movie for anyone who knows anyone with Asperger's or anyone who wants to get a better understanding of the condition. I would recommend watching this film as it is a brilliant insiders view.
