A BRILLANT YOUNG MIND * (Theatrical Release United Kingdom 2015)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì 

A Brilliant Young Mind—good watch—presents Asa Butterfield’s outstanding acting skills  within a framework of a story that greatly needs telling. The movie actively works to support and give courage to families raising autistic children. Sally Hawkins, as the mother to Asa Butterfield’s character, performs outstandingly. The addition of Rafe Spall to this story is terrific. The movie is a beautiful watch that has been exceptionally written, directed, and acted.
