dir. Roger Ross Williams, USA, 2016. 92mins. PG
A wonderfully life-affirming documentary about the remarkable Suskind family who find a surprising way to communicate with their autistic son, Owen.
Disney animated films and their colourful characters provide a roadmap for Owen to connect with the wider world and to learn how he can grow towards independence.
The unwavering love of his family and his own determination to succeed make for an amazing story.
