MY PAL ROSS: HOW I MET ROSS is in the KIDS FIRST! Film Festival - it may not be a regular, endorsed title
My Pal Ross as a script that addresses a young boy's isolation, heightened by his being on the Autism Spectrum. The background of the physical elements - an absent father, too busy a mother, coldness of fellow students - needs to be better developed so the audience is aware of the autistic child's world. The script shows intelligence and creativity in the writer's awareness that a sense of magic and art can help ease the extreme hurt of a child and allow her to understand that it is Okay to feel that, but that she has it within herself to rise above. This script could, with more attention, be a very useful tool. Also, animating it might heighten the storyline. I recommend this for ages 5-10 and give it 4 out of 5 stars. Reviewed by Juror #11
