The Sunshine Boy (Fridrik Thor Fridriksson, Iceland 2009)
There are some films that have the power to change the world, and I hope this one actually proves it.
Fridrik Thor Fridriksson directs this documentary about one woman’s journey to try and understand her autistic son’s mind. In adopting the voice of one mother’s search for answers, and help, for her son, the film introduces the wide spectrum of effects this condition can have on individuals and families, many of them heart-breaking.
