From out Oscar-winning director Roger Ross Williams comes this stellar documentary about an autistic boy who cannot communicate with his family – until one day he blurts out a line from the movie Aladdin. Slowly, but surely, immersing the boy in Disney tales helps to bring him out of his shell. The director of God Loves Uganda helms this marvelous film about Owen Suskind, based on the uplifting best-selling book by his father, Ron Suskind. This heartwarming documentary has earned numerous accolades, including this year’s Directing Award for U.S. Documentary at Sundance.
