In the last few weeks, I’ve come across two movie trailers, where the main protagonist is autistic. I’m always curious to see how people with autism spectrum disorders are portrayed in the cinema. So I’ll definitely try and watch them. I’ll post reviews if I get to see them!
Here are the trailers, let me know what you think:
- Jack of the Red Hearts
- Janes Wants a Boyfriend

One thought on “Some autism movies on my to-watch list”
Just fyi, the main protagonist of “Jack of the Red Hearts” is the neurotypical teenager who gets a job babysitting an autistic child. And as an autistic adult who was once very much like that child, I found it hugely triggering. Let’s just say it’s very much a tragedy-burden piece.
