A bit longish at times, but I watched it all. Aussie setting adds additional bit of interest.

I particularly enjoyed Toni Collette in her mom role and will check out (library joke!) more of her performances.

A teenager struggled to take care of his older austic brother when their mother was expecting another baby. Over dramatized scenes and forced joyful ending in mho.

Interesting to know the film is based on real-life story of the Producer's personal crusade to have a normal life,,, while living with & caring for two autistic brothers in the family.

Being adolescent & watching your autistic brothers being mocked & harassed by neighbors & strangers had to be very hard to bear.

This was a very good coming of age story set in Austrailia. Thomas, after moving to a new city, has a hard time fitting in and his autistic brother makes fitting in even more difficult. This is a very worthwhile movie to watch.
