Here’s a link to another film I am really looking forward to seeing when it is released later this year. It was written by a guy I used to work with almost 15 years ago – Michael Whelan. Michael also wrote a book about being a dad to a boy on the spectrum called The Other Country. When I read Michael’s book I realised that despite being an absolute pleasure to work with, he was going though a very torturous personal time following the autism diagnosis of his first son. Something he kept very private.
He chose to write a book. Something I think must have helped him enormously. And now he has written a film. Writing is such a wonderful vehicle for expression. We get to shape our thoughts, think deeply about what is important to us, our influences, contemplate life’s journey and I don’t know about you, but I feel a little more sane every time I publish a post.
Here’s the trailer.
