I watched a great Australian movie last night. Black Balloon. About an average Aussie family whose oldest child has Autism. The story focuses in on the difficulties of the younger brother who struggles to cope with his obviously 'different' sibling. It is heart wrenching, thus the puffy eyes today. I sobbed at several scenes, and laughed at just as many. It is a confronting film, and for those of us with ASD children hardly uplifting. But I think it was handled with great sensitivity and realism. I'm not sure how easy it would be to obtain for those in other countries, but well worth the effort to track down.
PS. I have just been informed those in Australia who missed it last night can see Black Balloon for the next fortnight on Iview (whatever that is).
