      I am pretty this movie is the worst in 2021 Or 2022

      1. Summer Rose

        @Saamir gaming Yep! Lol!

      2. Saamir gaming

        @Summer Rose sia will get worst actress grammy award LOL

      3. Saamir gaming

        @Summer Rose ikr

      4. Summer Rose

        Well it did win the worst actress, worst supporting actress, AND worst director! So you aren’t wrong! LMAOOOO. 🤣🤣🤣🤣

    2. Erik Dragon

      I love this movie. I hope they make a sequel.

      1. Summer Rose

        @AussieMan Understandable. Thank you for reading my comment and sharing your thoughts.

      2. AussieMan

        @Summer Rose "To be honest, I’m not even angry over the fact that Maddie got casted. That’s quite common. But it would’ve been nice to have an actual autistic person act there part." That's how I felt about Dakota Fanning's portrayal of Wendy Walcott in Please Stand By. While I liked the movie and thought that Dakota did a more respectful portrayal of an autistic character than the usual neurotypical, I think it would've been better if they actually had someone on the spectrum to play Wendy.

        @Erik Dragon It would’ve been a step in the right direction if Sia had done the correct research. Instead of looking to Autism Speaks, watching videos online, and only doing a minimum of THREE years of research in order to learn about this complex disorder. All Sia accomplished was spreading more misinformation and stereotypes about people on the spectrum. If you ask me, this wasn’t a “love letter” to the Autistic community like Sia had said, this was just a cash grab while trying to promote her album. After all that’s what Sia is right, a singer? But I’ll leave you to your own conclusions. All I know is that Sia fucked up, and she knows it.

      4. Erik Dragon

        @Summer Rose I don't mean any offense. I just felt this is a sweet and beautiful movie and I'm not sure why people are hating on it so much. At least for me it in regards to people with disabilities, diseases and substance problems, it helped me generate awareness and empathy that I otherwise may not have. It might not be perfect in any regards but I feel it's still a step in the right direction in helping us better understand and care for one another.

        @Erik Dragon We aren’t sensitive. We are trying to explain to you idiots why and how this movie can be harmful. But you refuse to listen to us!

    3. Tiara

      I am appalled with how offensive this movie is especially with the restraint scenes in it and the flashing lights ( my sister is epileptic) so flashing lights is over whelming for her

    4. Spencer Fry

      Sia is fucking evil

    5. idk

      This movie represented autism horribly, it is not an LSD trip. Anyway, using maddie, a neurotypical person to represent autism is in essence on the same level as a white person doing blackface... so why is it not treated similarly? Plus the glorification and somehow objectification of autism, and spreading of misinformation about autistic people, there should be more backlash on this, towards Sia. Also I nearly fell asleep during the movie, its pretty boring tbh

      1. Summer Rose

        @Kales Monroe As a person with autism myself, as well as epilepsy, the bright colors and loud music were too much. Many on the autistic spectrum have something called Sensory Processing Disorder. This makes everyday stimuli overwhelming. Also the fact that Sia handled things horribly online didn’t help either... it just made her seem closed minded and immature. All people were doing was pointing out the flaws and issues the film had. And all she did was get pissed at everyone who dared to criticize it. To be honest, I’m not even angry over the fact that Maddie got casted. That’s quite common. But it would’ve been nice to have an actual autistic person act there part. That way, they’d have some experience on what having autism is really like. However, I am angry that I have to keep repeating myself to others. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried explaining this to someone and their response was either “I don’t care” or “If you don’t like it then don’t watch”. The fact that Sia replaced that autistic girl instead of giving her accommodations to make the set and experience more comfortable for her, is just wrong. Instead, Sia just casted her star Maddie. And that to me just doesn’t sit right... Maddie was FUCKING crying to Sia! Begging not to be in the film, due to the fear of being made fun of and getting backlash from this. But Sia pushed her forward anyway, saying it was fine. Shows how much she cares... I know not every autistic person is the same as me, but please try to understand where we’re coming from. We aren’t hating on this film for no reason. We’re trying to explain why it makes us so uncomfortable. If Sia truly plans on releasing a film representing our community, it should be comfortable for EVERYONE within that community. Not just the handful that like bright colors and loud music. I know not everyone can be pleased, but surely you understand what I’m trying to say. Right?

That is not how you should treat someone who is having a meltdown. Pinning them down like a criminal? If anything, that’s probably make the meltdown worse!

Three years of research just isn’t enough to understand the complexity of what she is trying to portray. And the fact she used Maddie instead of the original actress really says something. There could’ve been accommodations set for the girl to help her cope while being on set, but Sia decided that it was just to hard, so she used her usual star Maddie. She even admitted that it was nepotism. Sia doesn’t give a shit about the autistic community. All this is, is just to promote her new album while trying to gain some more money while doing so. Sickening... Also, the fact that this horrific film got a GOLDEN GLOBE NOMINATION is just...not right. Link: www.goldenglobes.com/winners-nominees Sai apologized to the autistic community.

Since Sia admitted that the role of Music was specifically for Maddie herself. This makes the situation much worse because it was never about the autistic community at all... it was all about Sia’s music and her super star Maddie.

      I really enjoyed this movie. It made my day.

      1. Erik Dragon

        @Sia Lover I found it streaming on fmovies.to Just make sure to have your ad blocker working because the site has a lot of advertisements. enjoy

      2. Sia Lover

        Where can I watch it?

      3. Summer Rose

        Idk how seeing dangerous prone restraints and horrible representation can make your day, but whatever.

    7. Izzy my pickle

      Sia, autistic people do not see the world as if they are on LSD.

      1. Summer Rose

        As an autistic person, I agree.

    8. Vintage Fem

      Oh Sia...it's not weird to have ketchup and eggs. Should have had it Tabasco to that ketchup. Try a tub of cottage cheese then squirt ketchup in it...stir and eat with a spoon. Yum!

        jesus, now that is a rant of suitable size for Reddit

      Oh, Kate why oh why did you say yes to this movie.

    14. Valerie Leitter

      My son has Autism... I and absolutely disgusted by this! I don’t even think I can put in to words how much this pisses me off. This in an insult to people with disabilities. If they had done at least FIVE MINUTES of research on autism they’d know how to portray it in an okay matter. If they want nonverbal autistic child then look at the episode of criminal minds called. “CODA” the child was nonverbal but it was done EXTREMELY well. This is just insulting to a community that already gets enough hate.

        @Kales Monroe You’re so disrespectful.

        @Kales Monroe we aren't air :/

      3. Kales Monroe

        Crickets. FYI no one comes in here anymore except autistic people so you are pretty much writing into air.

        My comment got deleted. It had thousands of likes and hundreds of comments. And I’ll still keep repeating this to this day so nobody forgets: As a person with autism myself, as well as epilepsy, the bright colors and loud music were too much. Many on the autistic spectrum have something called Sensory Processing Disorder. This makes everyday stimuli overwhelming. Also the fact that Sia handled things horribly online didn’t help either... it just made her seem closed minded and immature. All people were doing was pointing out the flaws and issues the film had. And all she did was get pissed at everyone who dared to criticize it. To be honest, I’m not even angry over the fact that Maddie got casted. That’s quite common. But it would’ve been nice to have an actual autistic person act there part. That way, they’d have some experience on what having autism is really like. However, I am angry that I have to keep repeating myself to others. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried explaining this to someone and their response was either “I don’t care” or “If you don’t like it then don’t watch”. The fact that Sia replaced that autistic girl instead of giving her accommodations to make the set and experience more comfortable for her, is just wrong. Instead, Sia just casted her star Maddie. And that to me just doesn’t sit right... Maddie was FUCKING crying to Sia! Begging not to be in the film, due to the fear of being made fun of and getting backlash from this. But Sia pushed her forward anyway, saying it was fine. Shows how much she cares... I know not every autistic person is the same as me, but please try to understand where we’re coming from. We aren’t hating on this film for no reason. We’re trying to explain why it makes us so uncomfortable. If Sia truly plans on releasing a film representing our community, it should be comfortable for EVERYONE within that community. Not just the handful that like bright colors and loud music. I know not everyone can be pleased, but surely you understand what I’m trying to say. Right?

      Love SIA's music. In fact my favourite artist! Didn't expect this though.. After reading reviews and comments from actual people experiencing these conditions everyday, I don't want to see this. Why sia? why?

    17. Kales Monroe

      I cannot believe people are still bitching about this movie. Move on....find something ELSE to complain about. The only people in here are yourselves and aren't you bored just complaining to each other day after day? Go watch Silent Fall and complain about that instead.

      1. Summer Rose

        Have nothing to say? That’s what I thought.

      This has the same energy as asking an deaf person if they need a wheelchair

    21. FreddySam

      ugh. this movie is just so.... ableist.

      1. Kales Monroe

        @FreddySam So many things wrong. 1-I couldn't care less about Sia. 2-I am not a boy. 3-I certainly am NOT a fan of the people in this thread. In fact, I wouldn't spend 5 minutes in a room with any of you. Good luck with your lives. You are going to need it.

      2. FreddySam

        @Kales Monroe well, you are a Sia Fanboy. Reading your comments, it's clear 😂

      3. Kales Monroe

        How original for you to say that! Have not heard that one before!

    22. iLuvPetals

      jesus... i feel like im being called a slur just by watching this

    23. T3ars ¿

      Autism is really happy *Having to live the rest of your life knowing that you'll never fit in and that people will always treat you as a fucking baby even if you're the same age as them or older it's awesome 😊*

    24. Aesthetic Honeybee

      I am not taking anyone’s side. Not Sia’s, not everyone else’s opinion because we all have an opinion. Sia made a mistake, she didn’t realise what would happen. She may have groomed Maddie and I think she does need to see what she’s doing. But I think we shouldn’t be fighting about this, and I also do respect autistic people because I know some autistic people. We will get over it, there will be a solution. P.s. can no one hate on me please stay positive! i love all of you 😘🏳️‍🌈

      1. Kales Monroe

        No one comes in here anymore except autistic people. Who are you talking to btw?

    25. Erik Gunden

      I don't get the hate. When I watched the trailer I liked the idea - a girl, who sees the world in a different - Sia-music-video-style - way. That's what the movie showed. It doesn't say she has autism. No one claims that this is a documentary of autism. It's a movie. It's fiction. I really liked it.

    28. Spratdragon

      Why all the hate for Sia? The big bang theory and the good doctor use non disabled actors.

      1. basil

        because she handled things horribly with social media, refused to admit she was wrong, supported an anti-autism organization, and many more. also, the big bang theory fucking sucks.

      2. Summer Rose

        As a person with autism myself, as well as epilepsy, the bright colors and loud music were too much. Many on the autistic spectrum have something called Sensory Processing Disorder. This makes everyday stimuli overwhelming. Also the fact that Sia handled things horribly online didn’t help either... it just made her seem closed minded and immature. All people were doing was pointing out the flaws and issues the film had. And all she did was get pissed at everyone who dared to criticize it. To be honest, I’m not even angry over the fact that Maddie got casted. That’s quite common. But it would’ve been nice to have an actual autistic person act there part. That way, they’d have some experience on what having autism is really like. However, I am angry that I have to keep repeating myself to others. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried explaining this to someone and their response was either “I don’t care” or “If you don’t like it then don’t watch”. The fact that Sia replaced that autistic girl instead of giving her accommodations to make the set and experience more comfortable for her, is just wrong. Instead, Sia just casted her star Maddie. And that to me just doesn’t sit right... Maddie was FUCKING crying to Sia! Begging not to be in the film, due to the fear of being made fun of and getting backlash from this. But Sia pushed her forward anyway, saying it was fine. Shows how much she cares... I know not every autistic person is the same as me, but please try to understand where we’re coming from. We aren’t hating on this film for no reason. We’re trying to explain why it makes us so uncomfortable. If Sia truly plans on releasing a film representing our community, it should be comfortable for EVERYONE within that community. Not just the handful that like bright colors and loud music. I know not everyone can be pleased, but surely you understand what I’m trying to say. Right?

    29. Not MY Mess

      WHY THE HELL ARE THERE MORE LIKES THAN DISLIKES. WHAT THE HELL

    30. polar bear sans

      anyways watch k12 by melanie martinez it's a better unproblematic movie by an amazing singer

      1. idk 6986

        Agreed

    31. kiokuisme2

      Idk maybe the movie is less awful but this trailer is just terrible. It really feels like they made the girl with autism as cartoonish as possible. Also while it is visually pretty I can't see how someone made this and thought people with autism would love the massive overestimulation. Don't pretend to be engaging in activism and then create a product that the community can't even partake in.

    32. Anxiety Pancake

      hi this is shit

    33. RoseDiamond 413

      As an autistic person, i find this to be so offensive. You mocked the way people may move and stim. You chose Maddie over choosing an actual lead with autism or someone who understood it. You USED the autistic community for clout. Disgusting. You mocked autistic people, whether you meant to or not. You FORCED poor Maddie into a role she want comfortable playing and that could actually ruin her whole career outside of you. Then assured Caddie you wouldn't let people attack her rather than assuring accuracy. Its sad because, Sia, you used to be one of my biggest inspirations. Dont talk about mental health you dont understand unless your crew is gonna be netter at supporting accuracy. Music doesnt feel like the main character, its focused on her sisters pity party for herself. The music video cuts make it seem like Music's is something she needs to be cured rather than just accepting her as she is. Restraining people having an Autism episode isnt okay unless they're doing actual physical harm. Ableist GARBAGE is what this movie was. A shit stain on Sias career

      this could of been great if more effort and consideration were put in

    37. Justin Beltre

      This COULD HAVE been a great movie with proper assistance

    38. Attila Grace

      I just feel bad they made Maddie portray that role but she did a damn good job. I don’t think the movie is offensive at all, I don’t see why people are so butthurt. Again I just feel bad for Maddie. Movie was great.

    39. thyri

      Essa é a primeira vez que vejo a cara da sia kkkkk

      You can tell how the movie was by what it got on rotten tomatoes (it got an 8%) even cars 2 got a better score

      1. Keelan O'Steen

        its a good movie

      2. Keelan O'Steen

        @basil i love it so much too, but other people call it the worst pixar movie, but the good dino was the worst, cars two was so cute

      3. basil

        i love how cars 2 is the standard

    51. Noelle

      For those saying this movie is mocking, i get where you’re coming from. But this movie is about fully Autistic people and not people with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (Level 1 Autism). I’ve studied Autism for a while now, and have worked with lots of kids and teens. Although I am not trying to speak for the Autistic Community, 100% of the kids and teens i’ve worked with (whom are fully autistic), act a lot like the character in this movie. They can’t wash their hands or make a bowl of cereal by themselves. Thank you for understanding my point of view on this movie.

      2. Sir Fungi

        but also, just the way they treated “music” was not entirely normal, i’d say. and if an actual autistic person watched this, they’d probably have a meltdown or reaction because of these colors. not to mention sia called autistic people objects with wigs

    52. lollypopz

      As an autistic person who loves sia so so much this movie was just not it. I feel so made fun of its unreal.

      1. lollypopz

        @stuart1234 ok I understand your point but it is still very very bad. especially when sia who created the movie isn’t autistic and didnt get anyone who is autistic to see if her assumptions about the autistic community is true and lots of things that she said in the movie wasnt true. Even though she is trying to do something nice it just didnt come across like that especially when she even argued with us on Twitter when we said it wasnt right!

      2. stuart1234

        @lollypopz actualy I have to disagree with you there as well, because even tho it would be difficult it is still also possible for a white actor to play a black character and for it to not be racist, context is always important... like an actor can play a character who is racist while not actually being racist because it’s acting it doesn’t mean you actually have to be racist. Under the right context I think many people could be ok with a white actor playing a black character. An example of this I can give you is Robert Downey jr. in Tropic Thunder 2008

      3. lollypopz

        @stuart1234 yes it 100% exists and i must have worded my explication wrong for you to think i said it doesnt. Its just the fact that the person who actually plays music isn’t autistic. Its like a white person playing a black persons role and them saying the n-word but them also saying its ok because there playing a black role. In the end of the day that person is still white how the person who plays music isn’t autistic

      4. stuart1234

        @lollypopz yeah ok my actual and only concern is with how you say the traits music has just aren’t true, because that is where you lose credibility, because there definite are people with autism who display the severity of mannerisms Maddie portrays in her character, like I’m not sure why your trying to say it doesn’t exist ??? when it definitely does. like really I have eyes and I have seen what your trying to say doesn’t exit and I have no clue why your denying reality.

      5. lollypopz

        @stuart1234 it does make sense...in this movie the main character “music” isn’t actually autistic and alot of “autistic” traits that that character has just arent true. The way she stims and acts is just so wrong its actually upsetting and thats why the autism community just feels made fun of with this film

    53. mikiaywa

      that’s not- how autistic people act- oh no

    54. Jack Costello

      This feels soo off and just wrong

    55. Over.Mp3

      I haven't even watched it and I feel offended

    56. Tara B

      As an autistic person, I absolutely hated this movie because of how she basically used the character Music as a prop and not a character. And it’s like we only got to know ‘the warrior girl who battled alcohol addiction’ and not Music even tho the movie’s about her. They made things so childish it’s insulting. They dehumanized Music in many ways including not giving her a real name.

    57. Asa L.

      This is such a horrible movie. I highly doubt Variety had even seen it when they wrote their comment.

    58. daikito

      Sia wtf is this?

    59. Orion Smith

      As a person with Autism this movie offends me because this is how everyone sees autism, unable to speak or care for themselves it is a broad spectrum and having a non autistic person playing out harmful stereotypes is the reason I get bullied when I tell people about my disability and have even gone into a depression in which I considered suicide because if I were dead maybe they’d stop talking about me as if I wasn’t in the fucking room

    60. ReRe

      I'm an autistic person who heard about all the backlash for months but didn't watch the trailer until now and holy fucking shit, this is so cringe. It's worse than I expected. What I do experience: sensory processing issues, lack of focus, an inability to fully grasp conversational/social norms, pattern seeking tendencies, lack of coordination What I don't experience: visions of the people around me dressed as Teletubbies and partaking in elaborate, childlike choreography

      Cancel culture, have you seen the movies Rainman, My left Foot, Birdy, Elephant Man? To name a few I have personally loved along with Sia's beautiful, and criminally maligned, Music. The worst generation right now. Wow.

      1. Summer Rose

        As a person with autism myself, as well as epilepsy, the bright colors and loud music were too much. Many on the autistic spectrum have something called Sensory Processing Disorder. This makes everyday stimuli overwhelming. Also the fact that Sia handled things horribly online didn’t help either... it just made her seem closed minded and immature. All people were doing was pointing out the flaws and issues the film had. And all she did was get pissed at everyone who dared to criticize it. To be honest, I’m not even angry over the fact that Maddie got casted. That’s quite common. But it would’ve been nice to have an actual autistic person act there part. That way, they’d have some experience on what having autism is really like. However, I am angry that I have to keep repeating myself to others. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried explaining this to someone and their response was either “I don’t care” or “If you don’t like it then don’t watch”. The fact that Sia replaced that autistic girl instead of giving her accommodations to make the set and experience more comfortable for her, is just wrong. Instead, Sia just casted her star Maddie. And that to me just doesn’t sit right... Maddie was FUCKING crying to Sia! Begging not to be in the film, due to the fear of being made fun of and getting backlash from this. But Sia pushed her forward anyway, saying it was fine. Shows how much she cares... I know not every autistic person is the same as me, but please try to understand where we’re coming from. We aren’t hating on this film for no reason. We’re trying to explain why it makes us so uncomfortable. If Sia truly plans on releasing a film representing our community, it should be comfortable for EVERYONE within that community. Not just the handful that like bright colors and loud music. I know not everyone can be pleased, but surely you understand what I’m trying to say. Right?

      2. Pales Gensler (Thaeternerd)

        @fabooshness If you would actually pay attention to what the autistic community is saying about this movie you would know that it is vary harmful and dehumanizing towards us. Watch this short film to see what I mean kolove.info/must/bidio/fmnFk5hthW18emw.html

      3. fabooshness

        @Pales Gensler (Thaeternerd) I see your analogy but it is an epic stretch. Blackface was intentionally used to mock and harm. The history of portraying stories of people with disabilities has always been to champion and help those marginalized. Here is what is going to happen, and is happening, from woke people like you; it's the entertainment industry and the cache of celebrities and their talent to embody a role is what sell$ films! Now what will happen is less films will be made about the marginalized because stars will not touch these stories and you the audience will not see them. Like having POC removed from all products; Aunt Jemima, Uncle ben, etc.....you now ONLY have white faces on products. And you will have NO major releases about people with disabilities - that, again, always championed and humanized these people. Blackface never did. Absurd and false equivalence. You woke cancel culture have already destroyed the Oscars, the Grammy's, and even sports as the ratings and attendance are disappearing. That's a fact as everything is being ruined with these emotional, ignorant, arguments. Should actors not portray serial killers, or politicians, different sexual orientation, etc if they're not actually the thing they're playing? You would say yes because you think the rabbit hole you're going down has a resolve when it just destroys.

      4. Pales Gensler (Thaeternerd)

        @fabooshness My point was that blackface used to the norm and now it is not. Also I am should that when black people started talking about how offensive wight people reacted the same why as you. Plus both this and blackface are portraying an offensive of a marginalized group of people. So it is true this and blackface are not the same thing they are both bad.

      5. fabooshness

        @Pales Gensler (Thaeternerd) What are you comparing to blackface? An actor portraying someone with disabilities?

    63. Judai Winchester

      This. Movie makes a mockery of people with ASd and infantilises them. The bright colors were too much, the girl is a walking blackface stereotype. So much wrong with this... I can't even begin.

    68. Kay KJV

      I’m not autistic and I don’t know much about it, I do know that many actors do have to act and portray autistic people in the films they work in. I don’t think it’s wrong but I do think it’s good to have discussions on how sia could make this better for her viewers. I mean it’s a learning process, not everyone is going to have a perfect view of “society standards”. I think sia has a good heart and her intentions obviously weren’t to hurt anyone. Maddie Ziegler as well. I’ve heard she has cried on set making this film.

      In sorry but as a MOTHER of a 20 year old daughter who has autism & ID, this actually relates quite closely with how my daughter functions, now I have not seen the movie yet BUT I am looking forward to seeing what it brings to light... in a world that is so incredibly ignorant about intellectual differences like autism even still with asd being so high... I have experienced first hand for many years the ugliness of peoples reactions towards a variety of behaviors due to asd... so far this to me looks like a big step to shed some light to the world, which has me smh as to why so many would immediately bash & attack it.. I feel grateful that such an artist would step out & do this... of course no one who doesn't have asd or live with it daily is going to truly "get it" 100%, & with it being such a broad spectrum those of such high intelligence enough to fully critique its every layer would know this is a big step to raising not only awareness but really opening a door to being able to reveal truth from all aspects & angles 🙏🏼👁 smh open your eyes & minds to realize this is so important & be grateful someone has the balls to do it without borders & fear.. no it will not be perfect yes it will have some self driven aspirations behind it as do all movies from all creators... sigh #sia #autism #love #thankyou 🙏🏼💕

      1. DavineC

        @Summer Rose hi luv as i said I did not see all of it only the above trailer, now of course I do not condone that but it is bringing to light the truth of what has gone on or is going on, you see what im saying? Like if people are made aware we are more likely to change things.... look at how much attention this movie is getting... I remember when my daughter was in kindergarten she was only 5! And I walked into her class & her teacher whom I knew & trusted, she would not hurt my daughter, was physically restraining her on the floor & to see that i felt outraged & was like wtf is going on? Because i was not even made aware that any such thing was taking place or existed! I immediately let them know that they were not doing that to my daughter. I ended up homeschooling her for many years because she was only distressed at school & the behaviors were taking over our lives, within 2 weeks she was going back to her happy self. A lot of parents are overwhelmed & burdened by asd which is what causes so much stress & unhappiness in every one.. it is stressful especially for those trying to follow the typical way of life... luckily for me I am not one of those people which is why my daughter is almost always happy because I do not try to force her inside some "box" of rules to follow, why? because it simply did not work & created misery for everyone! So I adapted, we adapted to her which is not always easy but definitely easier than trying to force her to adapt to a world she simply cannot understand...anyway im just saying im grateful this movie is here because now the voices can be more widely heard! You see?👀👁💫💕

      2. Summer Rose

        What about the dangerous prone restraints in the film? It’s been shown to injure and even KILL autistic people! And it can be extremely traumatic to the autistic person involved. Please think twice about watching this horrid film. It doesn’t portray autism accurately at all. With all those flashing lights, it could cause meltdowns for some that don’t like them. And even seizures too. I wasn’t even aware that autistic people were more prone to epilepsy until I was diagnosed with epilepsy myself. Please... as another autistic person, don’t watch this. It won’t do the autistic community any good.

      4. Singedro

      Upon further inspection, particular claims about Sia's movie seems to be too muddled now to pin down as truth, and with the deletion of her Tweets, any further knowledge of this is difficult, perhaps impossible. First, there was the impression that she fully intended to cast an autistic girl, then, she claims nepotism, and now, in a fairly recent artcile I've found, she says Hollywood discouraged her from casting a black person for the original role in the very beginning www.upi.com/Entertainment_News/Movies/2021/01/31/Sia-regrets-caving-to-casting-pressures-for-Music/9951612075935/ It also seemed like it would be told through our eyes, but instead is primarily through the eyes of her caretaker, which we have plenty of. variety.com/2020/music/news/sia-debate-twitter-disabled-film-autism-music-1234837013/ I'm also quite impressed with her statement in this article “The movie is both a love letter to caregivers and to the autism community. I have my own unique view of the community, and felt it is underrepresented and compelled to make it. If that makes me a shit I’m a shit, but my intentions are awesome.” We could get into her troublesome self righteous comments, but that's for another post. Another thing mentioned is that it actually took her 8 years, not 4, to make the movie. Half of it was designated to editing. The original title was just called, "Sister" www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/venice-sia-says-film-starring-820853 I wish I knew when it changed over, as it appears that originally autism wasn't even going to be a part of the film. Again, inconsistencies. In an old Tweet someone screenshot, there's implications that she did indeed terminate the original actress's contract, and didn't just leave on their own accord. Again, all of these tweets are gone now, so we can't have the full story anymore, just bits and pieces twitter.com/snoringdoggo/status/1329777082088493058?lang=en Someone claimed she tried a second autistic and "he" didn't work either. Honestly, them mentioning there was another autistic after the first one "left" is news to me. I've only heard of the one. If anybody knows where I could find this information (links) I'd like to look further into that. Otherwise, I can only consider that bit of info as hearsay. She has claimed to have collaborated with other autistics on this film, and casted some them in other roles, but I've not heard any of them coming forward to give their opinion. I've only heard she used Child Mind Institute (troublesome organization run by NTs, although perhaps not as horrible as Autism Speaks) to see if Maddie's imitation was ok to go, and Autism Speaks supposedly approached her after the film was made. (If it indeed took 8 years, or even the 4 everyone states, that was pleeenty of time to learn about that organization). Basically what I'm saying is there is a lot of twirling going on, and Sia's claims continue to be either absent, inconsistent, or added to later.

      i have an autistic brother and this movie pisses me off so much like 1 its not that hard to find an amazing actress that is autistic to play the role of an autistic person. 2 restraining autistic people when they are having a mental breakdown is NOT okay AT ALL they arent gonna cause any harm to you. 3 the way that shes making it seem like autistic people are fucking stupid when they literally arent. some autistic people are really fucking smart. but oh my god why do they make it seem like autistic people are supposed to be our guidance, this isnt ok shes literally making autistic people seem like children when my brother literally can eat properly can read properly and is amazing at division (hes 8) literally the only thing that pisses him off is that sometimes he doesn’t understand stuff AS ALMOST EVERYONE he literally just needs someone to explain some things to him and hes good hes not fucking stupid and autistic people in general arent fucking stupid and they arent babys.

    95. Livmativ

      How much did those likes on this video cost Sia? I’m genuinely curious because based off the comments it’s like majority of the comments are hate. While the like to dislike bar doesn’t reflect the comments at all.

    96. Annie4Dance

      To all those ppl saying it sucks I don’t blame sia for not putting a real autistic person here, first of all their parents won’t let them and not to be rude it’s safer because once again not offense not all of them belong there... I’m not saying that have no talent it’s just that behind scene there is a lot of commotion and all. Greet her for making a song about helping a sick child and trying to make them happier.

      1. Summer Rose

        As a person with autism myself, as well as epilepsy, the bright colors and loud music were too much. Many on the autistic spectrum have something called Sensory Processing Disorder. This makes everyday stimuli overwhelming. Also the fact that Sia handled things horribly online didn’t help either... it just made her seem closed minded and immature. All people were doing was pointing out the flaws and issues the film had. And all she did was get pissed at everyone who dared to criticize it. To be honest, I’m not even angry over the fact that Maddie got casted. That’s quite common. But it would’ve been nice to have an actual autistic person act there part. That way, they’d have some experience on what having autism is really like. However, I am angry that I have to keep repeating myself to others. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried explaining this to someone and their response was either “I don’t care” or “If you don’t like it then don’t watch”. The fact that Sia replaced that autistic girl instead of giving her accommodations to make the set and experience more comfortable for her, is just wrong. Instead, Sia just casted her star Maddie. And that to me just doesn’t sit right... Maddie was FUCKING crying to Sia! Begging not to be in the film, due to the fear of being made fun of and getting backlash from this. But Sia pushed her forward anyway, saying it was fine. Shows how much she cares... I know not every autistic person is the same as me, but please try to understand where we’re coming from. We aren’t hating on this film for no reason. We’re trying to explain why it makes us so uncomfortable. If Sia truly plans on releasing a film representing our community, it should be comfortable for EVERYONE within that community. Not just the handful that like bright colors and loud music.

      guys Sia worked hard on this film she didn't mean to hurt anyone the offensive thing about the film is the way Sia answered , Sia used Maddie cause she is an AMZING dancer and she had her in mind it's called acting I mean u don't have to be a nurse to play the role of a nurse the same thing here and the acting is accurate My cousin has severe autism and this is how she acts I feel so so sorry for her because 99% of the people didn't see it yet the judge not cool PEOPLE you're the monsters for not feeling sorry for her, For not forgiving her

        As a person with autism myself, as well as epilepsy, the bright colors and loud music were too much. Many on the autistic spectrum have something called Sensory Processing Disorder. This makes everyday stimuli overwhelming. Also the fact that Sia handled things horribly online didn’t help either... it just made her seem closed minded and immature. All people were doing was pointing out the flaws and issues the film had. And all she did was get pissed at everyone who dared to criticize it. To be honest, I’m not even angry over the fact that Maddie got casted. That’s quite common. But it would’ve been nice to have an actual autistic person act there part. That way, they’d have some experience on what having autism is really like. However, I am angry that I have to keep repeating myself to others. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried explaining this to someone and their response was either “I don’t care” or “If you don’t like it then don’t watch”. The fact that Sia replaced that autistic girl instead of giving her accommodations to make the set and experience more comfortable for her, is just wrong. Instead, Sia just casted her star Maddie. And that to me just doesn’t sit right... Maddie was FUCKING crying to Sia! Begging not to be in the film, due to the fear of being made fun of and getting backlash from this. But Sia pushed her forward anyway, saying it was fine. Shows how much she cares... I know not every autistic person is the same as me, but please try to understand where we’re coming from. We aren’t hating on this film for no reason. We’re trying to explain why it makes us so uncomfortable. If Sia truly plans on releasing a film representing our community, it should be comfortable for EVERYONE within that community. Not just the handful that like bright colors and loud music. I know not everyone can be pleased, but surely you understand what I’m trying to say. Right?
