:D I loved this movie. I found it very moving, and it was the first time in a long time I cried at a movie.

Has anyone else had a strong reaction to the film?

I found the flashbacks/childhood scenes relatable. They caused a sort of mental 'breakthrough moment' for me in terms of self-understanding I think.

Not so much as a strong emotional response, but I did feel better after seeing the movie, as Asperger's was portrayed in a fairly accurate way.
That, and I'm always happy to see my home of the Spokane area portrayed in film. 8)

Relatable but a little over-stereotyped IMHO. I also thought Izzy had more issues than just Asperger's...

I have not rented a copy of M&TW in a long while, but IMO, Donald and Izzy were equally relatable.

Right now you can watch it in segments on Youtube.
Hulu might have it too but I haven't looked.

I always wondered: was it unethical for him to date someone from his group? Sort of like dating a patient/client?

I didn't really look at it that way. Besides, it's not exactly easy for an Aspie to find someone....

It struck me that she had Borderline Personality Disorder. I used to date a crazy bi... witch who had had that behavioral screw up.
