- Synopsis / Plot
- A dramatic, romantic comedy, "Mozart and the Whale" is inspired by the lives of two people with Asperger's Syndrome, a form of autism, whose emotional dysfunctions threaten to sabotage their budding romance. Donald (Josh Hartnett) is a good-natured but hapless taxi driver with a love of birds and a superhuman knack for numbers. Like many AS sufferers, he likes patterns and routines. But when the beautiful but complicated Isabelle (Radha Mitchell) joins the autism support group he leads, his life-and his heart-are turned upside down.
- Critics' reviews
"Material that easily could have been turned into cringe-inducing TV movie sap has been handled with reasonable intelligence and authenticity (...) From the first, there is a refreshing absence of special pleading or under-the-microscope examination in Naess' approach."
