This autism movie is called Jack of the Red Hearts that came out in early 2016. It’s a great example that really shows the challenges a family faces when there is child with autism. This is centered around how a young girl applies to be a therapist and develops a relationship through love when not actually qualified (don’t want to spoil it).
Much to her surprise, Jack has a unique ability to connect with the nonverbal little girl. As she positively impacts Glory, the family impacts Jack. Particularly Kay, Glory’s mother. As these two scrappy survivors find an affinity with each other, Kay finds in Jack a daughter she can talk to. When romantic sparks fly between Jack and Robert, Glory’s 17-year-old brother, we see a group of wounded people poignantly and surprisingly begin to heal each other-just a little bit.
It’s rated PG and runs for 1:42.
