    I got an e-mail from an Aspie group saying that this is coming out on DVD imminently.

    From Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Ron Bass (Best Original Screenplay, Rain Man, 1988) comes Mozart and the Whale, a heartwarming romance inspired by the true story of two people with Asperger's Syndrome (a form of autism), available on DVD December 12 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

    Mozart and the Whale: An Asperger’s Love Story” written by Jerry Newport, Mary Newport and Johnny Dodd will be available in hardcover from Simon & Schuster on January 9, 2007.

    Why do I always feel trepidation when something new is being
    presented to the public? Maybe I have some alphabet issues
    somewhere! Probably it is because of all the decades of hearing people who misunderstand/misunderstood ADHD.

    Here's hoping this is a positive prsentation. Thanks for sharing with us. DDD

    Oh, this has been out for a while. I posted about it last month.
    It was great. I really liked it. It is very entertaining, heartwarming, and a good movie ... plus, you get an education while you're watching it.
    There is an aspie who runs a support group and the others in the group are a bit stereotyped, but overall, they are charming.
    Well worth renting!

    Terry :hammer: I just realized that this post was from November
    and somehow it popped up like page one when I came to the site.
    What can I say........I have seen better days, lol.

    on the other hand I had missed it in November and now I have read it and replied to it AND said hello to my old friend OTE. So...being
    spacey paid off. :rofl: DDD
