a lonely guy with aspergers syndrome and the new chick from upstairs start a relationship.
i'm gross and girly sometimes. i liked this movie. it wasn't great or anything. it was kind of reminiscent of a lifetime movie, but i fell for it. who can't like the slow, but sweet guy from downstairs? eww. maybe it's hormones or something. the guy with aspergers played it unoffensively. he was pretty low functioning though. how this chick didn't know something was up before he told her...well maybe she's secretly a little slow herself. i must admit i started the day by watching that classic 80's teen romance/drama "lucas" i don't know why i always watch that when it's on either. i mean he doesn't even score a touchdown or anything, he's just the weird kid who got pummeled during the football game. i thought to myself at the end it must be the combination of the slow clap AND the freeze-frame ending that makes it so endearing to my soul. it must have put me in the mood to watch the outsider drama romance. like hitting a jar lid with a knife so you can open the damn thing.
