Autism Takes Center Stage in Sigourney Weaver Film
She says, "Even though 'Rain Man' was a great movie, there hasn't really been much about autism since. I think it's going to be welcome to have another view of what it is - a young woman who lives alone, a woman who has a job - so people can get closer to how many different ways autism manifests itself."
Weaver adds of the training she received before taking on the role, "I got a lot of coaching from people with autism on what not to do and how not to be, and on what to do and what to be. It was a great experience actually. They really were very generous to me and I really spent a lot of time in private places."
