An amazing documentary!

Informative and touching. Asperger's Are Us hits the mark right on the nose.

Very uncompromising in approach, I can sense the realness to it, as it was very raw and very unpolished.

Four young men with Asperger's become friends and start a comedy troupe . The movie takes place as the troop prepares for it's last show.

I feel like I got to learn a lot about autism from a group of people who actually have and can explain it, which is a better way to learn.

But most importantly, I got to know these four dudes on a personal level. One of my favorite parts of the film was when one of the subjects, New Micheal, compared them to the Beatles where as Noah, who is a little older and more Experience dealing with the world around him seems like the John of the group, New Micheal, who I respect for being so open with his insecurities, wants everyone to known he's the Paul of the group. It was a great leg to start the movie off in explaining the interaction between these two.

The documentary is amazing in the fact that it does nothing to make these guys better than they already are. It was important to see them living normal lives like normal human beings to completely understand what it's like to have Asperger's.

Very well done.

A Fascinating examination of Four Young Men with Asperger's

Asperger's Are Us was warmly received in its world premiere at Austin's SXSW Film Festival. It is a beautiful little film about what it is like to enter adulthood still dealing with Asperger's. We often hear about children and rarely hear about happens to those kids as they enter adulthood. This shows these young still struggling, but basically making it. Their effort to perform comedy – a difficult skill for Aspies – is inspiring. While their comedy is not all that funny in many ways, their efforts to work together and achieve something creative are powerful. For those of us who don't have a lot of experience with Aspies it is a great way to learn about their struggles. The filmmakers captured a lot of their intimate interactions as they rehearsed together. I appreciated their bravery in sharing their story with the world. The film is well-made and well-edited.

Well done documentary

As an autistic person myself, I was thrilled to watch a documentary that's not about being autistic, but still getting some important messages out there through tiny pieces of information and by fearlessly showing struggles that seem incomprehensible to a neurotypical person. We can be creative, smart, funny, interesting people and that deserves screentime for sure. There's not enough content like this focusing on adulthood for people on the spectrum.
