These are the movies that have characters with autism in them or are documentaries about autism. These are only the movies that are available on Netflix Instant Watch. I’ve added what I thought of the ones I’ve had time to watch and will edit this post as I watch more of them.
Loving Lampposts-I did a giveaway of this movie last year and it’s a really good documentary. It shows how unique people with autism are and interviews lots of adults with autism. I really enjoyed this one.
Frontline: The Vaccine War-This one has Jenny McCarthy and most people in the autism community have strong opinions one way or the other as far as vaccinations go. This movie has the potential to have you steaming mad or nodding in agreement depending on your vaccine stance.
Unforgotten:Twenty-Five Years After Willowbrook This is a pretty horrifying documentary about how some people with special needs were treated at the institution of Willowbrook.
Fly Away is about a young woman with autism and the struggles that she encounters and the struggles that her mom encounters as she grows up into adulthood. I liked this movie, I thought it was well done. Adrian and Sanura sat and watched the whole thing with me.
If you see any I missed message me and I’ll add them.
