CAST: Jonathan Freeman, Gilbert Gottfried, Owen Suskind DIRECTOR: Roger Ross Williams TUESDAY FILM SERIES

The inspirational story of Owen Suskind, a young man who was unable to speak as a child until he and his family discovered a unique way to communicate by immersing themselves in the world of classic Disney animated films. This emotional coming-of-age story follows Owen as he graduates to adulthood and takes his first steps toward independence.

"Life, Animated" doesn't try to give a cure-all to autism. It shows how one family approached the complex puzzle with the help of Simba, Sebastian and Lumiere.

There are moments of joy, revelation, connection, sadness and hope, and the film is very, very moving.
