    Brilliant insights from a brilliant film.

    Having raised an Autistic son, and seeing the huge gulf between his inabilities at age 8 and the fine young man he became by 18 by learning coping mechanisms and life skills, I would have to add one more line from the movie:

    I loved that movie and I like the advice. To me understanding what is understood is what love is.
