Dina is a documentary film by Antonio Santini and Dan Sickles as they follow an autistic couple on their approach to marriage. Dina Buno is a 48-year-old widow that lost her husband to cancer and had a violent attack by her ex-boyfriend. But Nina never shows these setbacks because of her huge self-esteem. Scott Levin works at Walmart and is very opposite of Dina. Scott has a hard time showing emotion and is always invested in his phone. Dina is a longtime family friend to Dan's family and after meeting Dan became so interested in Dina he followed her getting 600 hours of footage. We see the couple after deciding to get married and they move in together before their marriage to test out living together. Very quickly they start to notice their differences. But Dina is not a person to give up easily and we follow the character's struggle to overcome their obstacles. One of the most memorable scenes is the bachelorette and bachelor parties. Scott's version is going bowling with his friends and Dina's is a hired stripper for her and her friends. At first the idea of an autistic couple may not seem relatable. But Dina and Scott go through the same things any other couple getting married would go through. The film explores the couples wants and needs and how they can provide them for each other. The film does an extremely good job at humor. When Dina brings Scott to see the ocean for the first time she brings Scott a book about sex. This scene shows a very private moment with lot of humor. Dina finds it extremely easy to talk about this when Scott really doesn't. There are many moments like this where we might question laughing or put us in an uncomfortable spot. The filmmakers want us to laugh with the characters instead of laughing at them. Everything we see in the film seems so private but with every changing scene we want to know more about Dina and we are invested in what she is going to do next. As the documentary goes on we learn more and more about her past but the film takes there time. The filmmakers wanted us to know Dina as herself and then show how her past has affected her and possibly made her a stronger person. So the information we get makes us want Dina to succeed. Dina is a charming love story like no other that makes us think about marriage, love and overcoming our past.
