The feels
15 February 2017 | by d_leighton01See all my reviews

Adorable. You can't help but feel SO happy for Jane. If a bit cheesy, this film definitely won in the cute department. Brought a tear to my eye. I found it very easy to relate to as someone that experiences social anxiety. They did a great job at vividly depicting Jane's point of view and internal experience. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone interested in the subject of autism or similar mental health disorders. It is so interesting to learn about how people with Asperger's process the world. The moral of the story is that trust is essential to finding happiness in an often unforgiving, misunderstanding world.
