Peter Pan-dering to Disney investors
So one of my best friends personally knows the director of this film and has taught her in the past. Knowing this context and learning about my friend's experiences with the director was incredibly fascinating and he genuinely sounds like a really great guy!
So how's the film? Well, it's... not that great BUT, I have nothing but respect for Scrawl and the behind-the-scenes process. There are some great ideas in this but the execution isn't quite there.
Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio 2022
BFI London Film Festival 2022: Film #11
The best part about the world premiere was the host explicitly saying that this is NOT a kids film with a bunch of children in the audience, and then Del Toro just casually dropping the f bomb.

Jesus Christ, that was such an emotional gut-punch.
As a man on the Autism Spectrum, all I've got to say from the bottom of my heart to everyone involved in the making of this documentary:
Thank you for treating the Spectrum with the dignity and respect it truly deserves, by showcasing the hidden world/beauty of what non-verbal autistic people go through on a daily basis. Thank you for giving the voice we needed on film and by providing the representation that we've desired for so long.
