Now with additional material from the Suskind family! Imagine being trapped inside a Disney movie and having to learn about life mostly from animated characters dancing across a screen of color. A fantasy? A nightmare? This is the real-life story of Owen Suskind, the son of the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Ron Suskind and his wife, Cornelia. An autistic boy who couldn't speak for years, Owen memorized dozens of Disney movies, turned them into a language to express love and loss, kinship, brotherhood.The family was forced to become animated characters, communicating with him in Disney dialogue and song; until they all emerge, together, revealing how, in darkness, we all literally need stories to survive.

A heart breaking story that ends with inspiration and hope. Puts the struggles of parents and healthy children into vivid perspective.

Worth watching the five minute interview with the author/father on "The Daily Show" so you can hear the voices of both father and son.
