Dirs. Dan Sickles and Antonio Santini | Documentary | U.S.A. | 2016 | 101 min.
Outspoken Dina invites her fiancé Scott, a quiet Walmart door greeter, to move in with her. They are head over heels for one another, but shacking up poses a new challenge for this couple who are both on the autism spectrum and have grown up in a world blind to the value of their neurologically diverse experience. Dina is patient, but longs for the passion she’s seen on TV. Scott, though clearly devoted to her, must be constantly reminded of her needs, beginning with hand-holding. So intimate, honest, and dramatic, this film often seems like a scripted masterpiece.
Winner of the Grand Jury Prize
