Autism is a disorder that affects a lot of families. I’m sure we all know someone who has a family member who has autism to some varying degree. I’d also guess that a lot of us have seen Rain Man, which, as cheesy as parts of it can be, is a great look into the life of an autistic man.
The Horse Boy is a movie about a father and his relationship with his autistic son. Apparently this is the third attempt of a screening in Nashville, as the other two were canceled due to a variety of reasons including the flood. So, it looks like we’re finally going to be able to see this movie.
Even if, actually, especially if autism hasn’t affected your life you should try to get out to see this movie. If you’re the kind of person who wants to be more able to understand the lives of others then this is an event for you.
This movie will screen tonight, September 28th at 7pm in Vanderbilt’s Sarratt Cinema.
