Uncomfortable and cliched
Verified purchase
If you like watching actors at work, working quite hard, this is for you. Andrew Scott works especially hard and is actually very skilled (fans of Sherlock won't know this)...there's a palid, washed-out, pastel colour-palette...virtually no dialogue...and a kite. The uncomfortable cliches are to do with the depiction of people with Asperger's Syndrome as virtually silent, twitchy, child-like and mentally sub-normal. The twisted-hand-twitchy thing is particularly annoying...and reminiscent of the old-fashioned cliches around 'spastic' that so many brave people have fought so hard to dispell. I'm a parent of an adult with Aspergers...and a teacher of people with Aspergers....trust me, this is cliched, and pretty insulting. Employing an actor with Aspergers - there are many - might have been a better idea. Last but not least, it felt pointless.
