Nathon's Kingdom (Retroactive) Review---A Powerful Drama About Adult Autism and Its Toll on Siblings

    Adult autism can have its toll on a family. Jacob Lince plays an autistic adult taken care of by his drug-user sister, Madison Ford. They embark on a journey to find their long-imagined kingdom defying social workers and other odds, including a love-hate relationship with her brother because of her inability to deal with his autism. They also meet a few friends along the way. 

    The movie continues to detail their travels to find their elusive kingdom with a nice touch of animation to describe what appears to be the kingdom. The energy between the brother and sister is intense, but the storyline indicates she is an opioid user but does not develop that storyline. Do not miss Nathan's Kingdom to see if he finds it. I give the grade a B+.
