Molly is a 1999 romantic comedy-drama film about a 28-year-old woman with autism who came into the custody of her neurotic executive brother. The film was directed by John Duigan and written by Dick Christie of Small Wonder-fame, and stars Elisabeth Shue, Aaron Eckhart, and Jill Hennessy. (source;Wikipedia)

Plot; Elisabeth Shue plays the title character, Molly McKay, a 28-year-old woman with autism. She has lived in an institution from a young age following her parents’ death in a car accident. When the institution must close due to budget cuts, Molly is left in the care of her non-autistic older brother, Buck McKay (Aaron Eckhart), an advertising executive and perennial bachelor. Molly, who verbalizes very little and is obsessed with lining up her shoes in neat rows, throws Buck’s life into a tailspin as she runs off her nurses and barges into a meeting at Buck’s agency naked. Molly’s neurologist, Susan Brookes (Jill Hennessy), suggests an experimental surgery in which genetically modified brain cells are implanted into Molly’s brain. While Buck initially balks at the suggestion, he finally consents to the surgery and Molly makes a gradual but miraculous “recovery”, speaking fluidly and interacting with others in a “normal” way. Buck begins taking Molly to social events, like a production of Romeo and Juliet, a baseball game, and expensive dinners. However, after a few months, Molly’s brain begins to reject the transplanted cells and she begins to regress into her former state. Both Molly and Buck must accept the eventual loss of Molly’s “cure” and her regression to her previous state. In the final scene of the film, Buck accepts Molly’s autism and vows to remain in Molly’s life by creating a room for her at his home that looks just like the room she had at the institution.

I like this movie because of acception from Buck to his autistic sister Molly, despite the thing he didn’t want it at the begining. This movie shows the hard life of sick people and people that have to take care of them.
