Hello all and welcome to the first post!
My son, Jordan, (age 16, severe learning difficulties and autism) has been watching 'Little Miss Sunshine' obsessively. Was it the drug-taking or the seriously weird spectacle of the beauty pageant? No, it was Duane the grandson having a serious tantrum at the side of the road upon learning that he is colour-blind. Jordan didn't get it about colour-blindness but he did understand that Duane's grandfather died. Jordan didn't get it when his own grandfather died five years ago but when the grief hit him a month ago, resulting in some very challenging behaviour (imagine Duane's outburst but in Peckham, in public, every day for three weeks), we were hard-pressed to give him an appropriate context for his emotions.
What a relief, then, for the boy to find comfort in something that is not Disney!
Anyone else out there with their own films that they watch for therapeutic purposes?
Let me know...
