About the Movie
From the Academy Award® Nominated Producer of Up In The Air and Executive Producer of Juno. The world is a confusing place for Wendy, a fiercely independent and brilliant young woman with autism. Wendy longs to leave her group home and return to life with her sister’s family and new baby. She is sure that in order to reunite with her family all she needs to do is convince them of her newfound competence and abilities. As a lover of all things Star Trek, Wendy writes in her free time; so when she hears about a Star Trek screenplay competition, she seizes the opportunity to submit her 500 page script and prove her worth. The only problem: if she doesn’t hand it in in person she will miss the deadline! Wendy sneaks out of her group home and travels hundreds of miles outside her protected boundaries and refuses to let anything stop her from achieving her goals.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: This timorous tale sidesteps uncomfortable realities in favor of soothing whimsy and preordained uplift.
Fresh: Fanning [is] a performer who never chomps down on a role-she plays Wendy as a person and not a condition.
Fresh: Touches the viewer with the subtle emotional wallop of a feather brushing against the heart.
Fresh: A sensitive character study whose story beats are a little bit overly familiar.
The vibe, connection, with the character and her struggle, her persistent need to move foward while facing many obsticles, the film was AWESOME!! The tie-in with Star Trek and her own life mixed with witty geek references made this movie perfect. Dakota Fanning is a wonderful actress! Star Trek is a fantastic franchise! And let us not forget the Dog- what a cute dog! The supporting cast should also be commended as their relationships felt real keeping the tone of the movie warm and exciting.
A perfect movie
A beautiful, well crafted story. It is a road trip movie, with a perfect story that touched me deeply. Thank you to all of the filmmakers, actors and writer for this.
