My life as a movie?

Nobody would greenlight that nonsense.

A family friendly animated movie
Void of profanity, but it makes up for it with silly gags.

I want my character to be voiced by either Jim Carrey or Bill Murray

It will also be the first kids movie with an lgbtq+ lead. It will be subtle, but very obvious at the same time

The movie would experience an ample interest with indepdendent film buffs, and may experience brief interest with the general movie-going public - an overlooked 'Cult Classic' of sorts? Critics would note my production of what a modern-day Mark Twain might produce.

CORRECTION to above paragraph: If my life were a movie, the movie would be based-on the book (the movie would fail to do justice for the book).

The real story would be more drama (for lack of a better word) than humor (some bits of humor would be in the story).

The main story-line would focus on being an adult on the Autism Spectrum who lives in that difficult to understood part of the spectrum, the struggles of 'not being disabled enough yet not quite able (NT-like) enough either.

The meta-narrative themes present in the book are applied to act as guide-posts, and are sometimes necessary to deal with life on the Autism Spectrum - guide posts to boost both a further understanding of life, as well as boost Autism awareness with the readers via..........a meta-themed storyline.

Like the movie, the book would thoughtfully blend personal experiences with news stories (and media criticism itself)
about the world at large. Technology e.g., Interent, AI, etc. would comprise fair shares of the story-line.

The book would feature experiences of adults both prominet, and largely unknown who are concerned witn the Autism Spectrum.

The reviews e.g., critics might draw parallels to Samuel Clemmens (better known as 'Mark Twain') simply bacause my story would at times sound like something a modern-day Mark Twain might have authored. It's beleived that Samuel Clemmens was on the Autism Spectrum.

Like the movie, the book would experience an ample interest with indepdendent book-stores, and and even interest with the larger bookseller's patronage.

This book might increasingly appear on required lists of reading in education - a book which people would want to read second-times in future years. A 'Cult Classic' of sorts?

Not horror, sadly.
Not really action either.

Definitely not romance.
Comedy and mystery, maybe.

Not sci-fi, not fantasy. Or maybe it is.
Maybe documentary.


It's a story about a spirit, very frustrated at their own physical counterpart's life, with a manifested ego who's also equally frustrated.
Also said spirit is just as frustrated at the cycles of humanity not moving on; wanting to find the solution, went to a certain life.

Heroes journey... Supernatural aide? Mentors? And helpers? Oh yes all that, too.

Lots of revelations, but without transformation and atonement phases -- not even at the ending.
It loops back at the beginning of said phases or remains into the unknown but with similar yet very different scenarios.
That's the mystery; the main characters' lack of sudden growth.

No allegories or moral lessons.
5 stages of grief over one's own existence, but without acceptance.
There's also no protagonists... Or antagonists... Everyone is both.

Lastly the narrator is unreliable.
And the whole thing is relatively boring.

It's a story about the reality of the human existence; nothing deep or too psychological.

In brief, the film, and orginal book would be about an adult on the Autism Spectrum who lives in that difficult to understood part of the spectrum, the struggles of 'not being disabled enough, yet not quite able (NT-like) enough either.

The book, and the movie would at times take rather novel, sometimes intellectual points of view, as well as the mundane parts of living life with that overlooked part of the Autism Spectrum, (Yes, this can boost readership, and audience interest).

----Since books, and/or movies rarely deal with adults who are 'not disabled enough yet not quite able (NT-like) enough either' - further discussion is needed on both the challenges, and triumphs of adults who are 'not quite disabled enough yet not quite able (NT-like) enough either.'

Probably a supernatural horror/thriller and I'd be the eccentric psychic character. :skull:

Real-life examples of that difficult to understood part of the spectrum, the struggles of 'not being disabled enough, yet not quite able (NT-like) enough either' sorely needs further awareness.

Might further discussions on real-life examples for that difficult to understand part of the Autism Spectrum yield a real-life book, and movie (remember, the book has to come before the movie - or for that matter, an actual movie might be unnecessary)?

Maybe a psychological thriller centered on a young man on the spectrum (he is also epileptic)
who lives with his cynical NT sister.

They're both unemployed and have mental health issues much to the dismay of their mom
who loves being a perfectionist and enjoys tormenting them every single day.

Example: The young man and his cynical NT sister are both discouraged by their mom from finding themselves proper employment for undisclosed reasons, but the mom says it is not because of their mental health issues.

Twist: The mom may have mental health issues herself. :?
