The Reason I Jump
thru Thurs Jan 21
$12. for a 5-day rental

(not rated) 1 hr 25 min

Based on the best-selling book by Naoki Higashida, The Reason I Jump is an  exploration of neurodiversity through the experiences of nonspeaking autistic people from around the world.

The film blends Higashida's revelatory insights into autism, written when he was just 13, with intimate portraits of five remarkable young people. It opens a window for audiences into an intense and overwhelming, but often joyful, sensory universe.

Moments in the lives of each of the characters are linked by the journey of a young Japanese boy through an epic landscape; narrated passages from Naoki’s writing reflect on what his autism means to him and others, how his perception of the world differs, and why he acts in the way he does: the reason he jumps. The film distills these elements into a sensually rich tapestry that leads us to Naoki’s core message: not being able to speak does not mean there is nothing to say.

"It's as emotionally piercing as it is beautiful to behold..."- Variety

This dark comedy from Argentina is the story of a group of four long-time friends, including a used-to-be-famous actress, her now disabled husband and the writer of her greatest hits. They are retired from the movie business, forming an unusual family in a decaying mansion in the countryside outside of Buenos Aires. Their coexistence is menaced by a young couple who, feigning to be lost, slowly insinuate themselves into their lives. It's Sunset Boulevard meets The Best Exotic Marigold Hotelwith a Latin twist. Financial gain, seduction, betrayal, and memories run amok are the elements that create the recipe for this delightful game of cat...and weasel. 

"Old-fashioned fare with an up-to-date edge...enjoyably over-the-top." - The Hollywood Reporter
