In case you either haven’t seen, nor heard of it, it’s a fairly recent movie made by Australian pop singer Sia, about an autistic girl named Music. It was a passion project for Sia, had a bit of a development/release hell, and when it finally came, it was highly criticised by the autistic community, with one notable aspect being that lead star Maddie Ziegler, a very close friend of Sia, having appeared in many of her music videos, was not autistic, with her character being thus considered an almost insensitive stereotype representing autism. When the movie’s controversies surrounding this began, Sia attempted to defend herself (by Twitter, of course), but this only put fuel to the fire. In short, Sia had been very poorly prepared.
After a troubled release (partially halted by the ‘rona) it saw a release in Sia’s native Australia, in the middle of January 2021, before getting bumped On Demand in the US, a mere month later. To pretty poor reviews.
So, just out of curiosity, have any of you seen it?
(And before anyone asks, no i’m not autistic.)
