“The film is a documentary gem.”~Hollywood Reporter

Aroview: The inspirational, unique story of Owen Suskind, a young man living with autism whose life is enriched by Disney animated films, and the unconditional support of his family.

Unable to speak for years as a child, he slowly emerged from isolation through the character, dialogue and moral messaging of Disney fables, creating a roadmap to reconnect with his family and the wider world. The subject of his father Ron Suskind's bestseller, this adaptation presents an emotional coming-of-age story that is surprisingly relatable to viewers with a more typical childhood experience of the animated magic of Disney.
