Asperger's Are Us
Directed by Alexandre Lehmann
For the members of the comedy troupe Asperger’s Are Us, it’s easier to associate with a faceless audience than with their own families. No matter who the crowd, best friends Noah, New Michael, Jack and Ethan have one simple mantra: “We would much rather the audience appreciate us as comedians than people who have overcome adversity.” In this coming-of-age heartfelt documentary, this band of brothers finds themselves at a crossroad. With real life pulling them apart, they decide to plan one ambitious farewell show before they all go their separate ways. People with Asperger’s don’t deal well with uncertainty, and this is the most uncertain time in their lives.

Man. Please, please watch this. I felt this amazing sense of peace. My whole being is smiling.
★★★★ review by Alex Kokenis on Letterboxd
We're not all the same.
in a society that tends to not look past people's outward personality and appearance, this documentary is so important.
a small story, but one of the most touching portrayals of friendship and connection I have seen displayed in this format. we need to see more of this.
people are people and we all deserve to be treated the same. go hug your friends and watch this!

Great documentary. I loved it. Gino and Chase are now convinced that I'm autistic though.
