My fellow Babycenter blogger Kim Moldofsky posted a great piece the other day on a documentary that will be showing on PBS tomorrow night. It's called Today's Man, and it chronicles Nicky Gottlieb, a 21-year-old with Asperger's. The coolest part? It was made by Nicky's sister Lizzie. And here we have the intersection of two wonderful trends: siblings who take an active role in educating the world about their brothers and sisters, and a new, honest crop (okay, croplet) of movies about people on the spectrum. I'll plan to watch and let you know my Deep Thoughts.
Check your local PBS listings. Meantime, thanks to Kim for the tip!
