Praise for Fridrik Thor Fridriksson's A MOTHER'S COURAGE

CRITIC'S PICK! - New York Magazine

"Riveting documentary.the sight of a mother finally able to connect with her child across autism's chasm is more than stirring." - Andy Webster, The New York Times

"A mystery replete with miracles! Will leave audiences stunned and rethinking what has long been considered a disorder devoid of hope." - John Anderson, Variety

"Beautifully shot, fascinating film." - Michael Ordona. LA Times

"Undeniably fascinating." - Billie Cohen, Time Out

"Nobody is left unaffected by this cute little boy called Keli and his mother’s determination to get to know him better." - Ingibjorg Rosa Bjornsdottir, Iceland Review

"Truly's getting to witness a miracle as it happens. When I saw this film I thought, 'we have to get as many people to see this as possible', especially because autism is such an epidemic in the United States. A Mother's Courage will allow people to once again have hope." -Rosie O'Donnell

"A Mother's Courage does not sugarcoat autism, or celebrate it, or cure it. The movie's strength lies in that it shows the heart-wrenching reality of what families have to go through to get assessments, diagnosis and advice; it shows the reality of the pain parents feel when their bubbly, verbal child regresses and becomes autistic. This film is a good resource for promoting community awareness that families can share with their relatives and neighbors. They will gain a better understanding of what families effected by autism go through every day." -Author Chantal Sicile-Kira (41 Things To Know About Autism) on Huffington Post
