johanlefourbe: Nick is my step-son and he is autist. The plan is to watch those movies together and see what he thinks about it. We built up this list together and I'm responsible for the layout.

Great list! I wouldn't have pegged some of these as movies about autism, at least at first glance. For example, I wouldn't have thought of Little Man Tate as a movie about the autism spectrum, but now that I think about it, he definitely has Asperger's traits.

If you ever decide to add some commentary to some of the items on this list, I'd love to hear more about what you thought about how autism was portrayed in some of these films. (Was it realistic? Was the character with autism well developed?)

By the way, I've seen about half the movies on this list. I'd say my favorites were Snow Cake and What's Eating Gilbert Grape?

I have autism too.

As you may have noticed, nothing much is going on with this list. I'm afraid I was a little too ambitious and, frankly, Nick really hates talking about autism so, for the time being, it won't work out. Still, I hope in a couple of years to try this again with him. Keep you posted!

ok, cool list anyways. Chocolate is another movie involving an autist girl
Posted: 5 years, 9 months ago at Jan 28 13:34
@CRza, do you mean the movie with Johnny Depp ? the young girl was definitely not autistic.
Posted: 5 years, 9 months ago at Jan 28 15:54
CRza probably means the thai-actioner: http://www.listal.com/movie/chocolate
Posted: 5 years, 9 months ago at Jan 28 16:36
@VierasTalo, indeed, my bad! Never heard of this movie before, I will add it to this list later on.
Posted: 5 years, 9 months ago at Jan 28 17:46
Yes - thats the one.
Posted: 5 years, 9 months ago at Jan 28 21:54
@CRza, thanks for your suggestion! As you can see, it has been added to the list.

This is a very cool and interesting list. I would love to honestly hear this guy's opinion on these films. It would be very interesting to see. I hope you two have a lot of fun watching these movies.

@Ricky49er, right now, Nick is not really interested in spending watching movies about autism, he'd rather watch movies about vampire, werelwoves, zombies,... ;)

I guess he is still in denial and would rather be 'normal' (as if anyone is normal in this world...). Maybe we'll try this project again in a couple of years. :)
