Stand Clear of the Closing Doors: Sam Fleischner Indie about Autistic Hispanic Boy

I caught Sam Fleischner’s low budget indie on DVD and would like to recomend it.

It centers on an autistic  boy, about 13, who gets lost on the subway on the eve of  Hurricane Sandy, back in October 2012.

We have seen films about autistic children but thie one is about a Hispanic, a group that’s vastly underestimated in American cinema, both mainstream and indie.

Fleischner shuld be commended for his attetion to detail of how ordinary New Yorker breathe, live, and work in an urban milieu that functions as a character in the tale.
