    As support staff for adults with intellectual disabilities, this film spoke to me.
    Since 2008, I have earned my living as support staff for six adults who live in a group home. Each person has his or her own intellectual disability. Two of the people I support are autistic. As such, EZRA showed me a lot of what I knew already but that most people wouldn't.

    I recommend this film to anyone who cares for a person (or people) with an intellectual disability. It isn't perfect, but it has a heart and a soul. Also, it strongly exudes empathy for those with disabilities and for the people who love and take care of them. Parts of the film even had me in tears!

    And ignore the measly 6.5 rating. For those in the know, EZRA is much better than that!

    Don't Waste Your Time or Money on this one
    Let me start off by saying that I've never watched a movie where so many people just got up and walked out of the theater halfway through. And honestly, I should have walked out as well. Let's start with the one positive- the acting was good. Now for the bad- the story is terrible and doesn't have a point. The entire movie just wandered everywhere. It was frustrating and depressing and seemed like an instructional video on how not to help an autistic child. It was basically a movie where you watch a father self destruct and then some how turn it around in the last couple minutes of the movie. Basically the entire movie was depressing and frustrating until the last 10 minutes where it is all rainbows and unicorns which didn't make any sense. Avoid this movie at all costs. I attended with my wife who works with autistic children and my 3 kids (ages 16-22). We all agreed that this was one of the worst movies we have ever seen.
