Dividing Bar

Valuable documentary, but determinedly optimistic and in spots over-sugared. The Autism Puzzle is an even better watch, as is the four-part BBC series Young, Autistic and Stagestruck, which, similarly, follows a group of autistic kids putting on a play. It features nine kids rather than five, and a wider range of ages. I thought it did a better job of depicting all points on the autistic spectrum, from the periodic incontinence of the lowest-functioning kid to the meltdowns and suicidal depression of the two highest-functioning. However, Autism: The Musical does delve more into the impact on the parents of their children's disabilities. I did think though that it was a bit irresponsible to allow the statements of two of the parents that they believed their children's disabilities were partly caused by "chemicals in the vaccines" to pass without comment.
