"Loving Lampposts" - A Movie About Autism

     Take a minute to view the trailer to the recently released movie Loving Lampposts.  Here is an excerpt from an introduction posted below the trailer on IMDb: 

     "As autism has exploded into the public consciousness over the last 20 years, two opposing questions have been asked about the condition: is it a devastating sickness to be cured? Or is it a variation of the human brain -- just a different way to be human? After his son's diagnosis, filmmaker Todd Drezner visits the front lines of the autism wars. . . And we meet a too often ignored group: autistic adults. It's these adults who show just how tricky it is to judge an autistic person's life. . ."

     The trailer alone will cause you to want to see the movie.
