    ...the DVD features an anamorphic 1.85:1 transfer... the only 'extra' is a trailer - rather strange for a movie that, reportedly, never received a theatrical release
    (still reportedly, it received its 'premiere' on an airline - and then, again reportedly, quietly died a, reportedly, thoroughly well-deserved death --- but...YMMV, of course!)...

    As the father of an autistic child, I wanted to like the film but I didn't. The story was far-fetched -- experimental surgery that cures a disease whose etiology no one understands fully -- then maudlin, then ultimately boring. That leaves "Rain Man" and "Mercury Rising" as the only decent movies about autistic people I've ever seen.

    It was intended to be released theatrically. I saw the trailer, and a couple theaters had the poster up. Although I haven't seen it, I'd expect that it's quite bad since the studio decided to release it more or less straight to video. The trailer was very mawkish and didn't make it look good IMO.
