Mercury Rising #AutismMovie

 

This is the only Autism themed Hollywood action movie that I have seen.

  • Thailand has produced an Autism themed action movie
  • Chocolate – featuring a Martial Arts Autistic Savant
  • A very unusual blend of genres

 

Autism and Savant Syndrome feature prominently in this movie and form the basis of the entire plot.

  • The story would probably have been far less credible without the Savant character
  • But despite this, Autism does not overwhelm the movie
  • Instead it creates and sustains an unusual element of intrigue
