True/False 2016: 'Life, Animated' Review

Life, Animated was my mother's favorite film at this year's True/False. I suspect it may be a strong Oscar contender. This look at the Suskind family, particularly son Owen, who has dealt with autism since he was a boy, is potently emotional, but it's also a feel-good tale. I can imagine a lot of people responding the way my mom did. My review is up at Screen International.
