Did anybody see A Mother’s Courage: Talking Back To Autism (aka The Sunshine Boy) yesterday on HBO?
If so, what did you think of it?

I’m dying to watch it myself as I’m very interested in the subject and my mother used to treat autistics. :)

Flyer for casting call for Mildred Pierce

The miniseries, based on the book from 1941 by James M. Cain, tells the story of Mildred Pierce Beragon, a single mother of two daughters in the Great Depression trying to make ends meet, financially and emotionally. It will be directed by Todd Haynes, also a co-writer, who directed I’m Not There and Far from Heaven.

A feature film version of the book was produced in 1945 and starred Joan Crawford, who won an Oscar for best actress for her role as the main character.
