_Mozart & The Whale_ was also pretty good; based on a true story...a romantic drama about two Aspies...the real people the story is based upon got married, divorced, and then re-married.
The Temple Grandin movie was great, and I agree, Clare Danes deserves an Academy Award.
I sometimes wonder about Irish comedian Dylan Moran, wonder if he could be "one of us". Character Bernard Black of the BBC's series _BLACK BOOKS_ is of course a caricature, but I do think Moran poured a lot of himself into that character. I've seen some of Dylan's early stand-up and he looks VERY uncomfortable on stage but he's witty and has enough verbal dexterity to make himself funny and self-deprecating. I've read (on IMDB) that he really dislikes giving interviews and keeps to himself and doesn't like press attention paid to him or his family. I've seen footage of him doing a Q&A with an Australian audience after a screening of the Irish indy film "A Film With Me In It" where Moran plays supporting character "Pierce". Dylan again looking VERY uncomfortable...the audience seated way too close to him...he can't make eye contact with them and just looks off into space when answering....it takes (several) glasses of wine later before he can bear to start looking in their direction... Just pure speculation on my part, and I don't know if there's an Aspie equivalent to "gaydar" but if so mine is "pinging" on Dylan Moran....(and I LOVED the series Black Books)
