...a film about autism in real life.



"To pull out the rug from an audience and make it gasp even once is an achievement; to do it twice is close to miraculous."
--Peter Filichia, NJ Star Ledger

A film about what it's like for parents

Samuel Holden's parents are desperate to find the right treatment for their son.


After another depressing meeting with their school district's case manager, Samuel’s father goes to extreme lengths to try to get his son into an expensive private school. Meanwhile his mother pursues a costly but unproven therapy technique marketed by a charismatic internet figure. 

While the world of Love and Communication involves a mysterious condition, and an almost Kafka-esque quest for the right treatment, at its core the film is a universal story about a couple struggling to find common ground.

"A one-of-a-kind film that will resonate with audiences worldwide."

--Paul Cimins, Autism Radio

Why I made Love and Communication

Parents of kids with autism aren't heroes. When I hear the well-meaning, "I don't know how you do it," I nod my head politely, but think to myself: "because I don't have a choice." 

This film shows the real struggle of highly imperfect people, trying to do what's best for their child but stumbling along the way.  Check out the video below to meet our son Jimmy and learn more about our story. 

-- Jim Christy (Writer/director)
