Please Stand By

From the Academy Award® Nominated Producer of Up In The Air and Executive Producer of Juno. The world is a confusing place for Wendy, a fiercely independent and brilliant young woman with autism. Wendy longs to leave her group home and return to life with her sister’s family and new baby. She is sure that in order to reunite with her family all she needs to do is convince them of her newfound competence and abilities. As a lover of all things Star Trek, Wendy writes in her free time; so when she hears about a Star Trek screenplay competition, she seizes the opportunity to submit her 500 page script and prove her worth. The only problem: if she doesn’t hand it in in person she will miss the deadline! Wendy sneaks out of her group home and travels hundreds of miles outside her protected boundaries and refuses to let anything stop her from achieving her goals.

    Beautiful story. Cute actress, adorable puppy that I fell in love with (who didn’t?), and encouragement to face adversities to keep going forward. Thanks YouTube.

    Good movie

    I liked the story, but it was difficult to see her big dream ignored. If mailed, yes it would have been a different story maybe about rejection, or not giving up, maybe Wendy wanting to help others, or examples of how others can help those with Wendy’s condition, etc.

    how did i not know about this movie?? i was pleasantly suprised with the wonderfulness of the movie’s flow…super acting from all. dakota fanning’s part always takes a project to the next level.! i’m a big fan! adding this to my favorites, right there with " secret life of bees". You made my whole day!.

    Why didn’t Scottie mail Wendy’s script for her? If the head of the group home had talked to Wendy and known more about her, she would have known how important it was that her script was to reach the contest by the dead line. Wendy had so much promise and needed to be encouraged and loved.

    DNA testing is 100% necessary!!

    Dakota … what else need be said ! I met her , she is very real and very pleasant.

    Excellent nuanced movie: the challenges Wendy ‘boldly’ confronts being viscerally felt, buoyed on the underlying subplot strains seen by her sister and caregiver that flow beneath. Internally voicing her script snippets, she narrates steps living the struggle to reach past boundaries; these parallel her familiar fictional character surrogate Spock, substantially like confined by an unavoidable intrinsic unassailable barrier to owning natural basic human understanding: thereby she as her protagonist fundamentally, inherently remain partially alienated, enduring to survive thereby the limits of social separation. The final resting her head on her sister, holding her nephew, a success.

    I love Toni Collette. Depressing movie though.

  14. Dan Bam on November 10, 2021 at 11:13 am

    For some reason, I imagine Dakota Fanning in a Wes Anderson movie.

  15. Lolitabonita on November 10, 2021 at 11:14 am

    Very very very GOOOOOD movie!!!

  16. P Arroyo on November 10, 2021 at 11:14 am

    Not my usual fare, by a loooooong shot! That said, I’m pleased with my decision to watch it, as this movie put me in touch with some perspectives I’ve sorely needed.

    This movie acts like everyone is a rook out to get her. Unrealistic and a highly uncomfortable film. Pass!

  18. medievalmusiclover on November 10, 2021 at 11:18 am

    Good job in any sense. Hi Dakota, congratulations…. Greeting from Dallas, Texas. God Bless always.

    Black Friday advertisements already screaming at others about these big sales have they really learned not a goddamn thing from last year?
    scams are exactly like dirty polititions with the lies deception and plotting all the time and the senator debate last year was so boring.guess what folks it’s the same crap every four years the same as every president debate why bother wasting time watching it.
    Lewis Black could pick apart all the bullshit going on. in the world yeah that’s right corporate douchbags were on the outside we are looking in we can see through you see your true colors.
    contributors complain about bad world leaders they bitch about all the time down town they don’t realize they’re contributing to bad world leaders we allow ourselves to be victims of world crimes and these scams like Publishers Clearing House and Delilah Bell work from home then act all surprised when finding out the truth.ignoring problems until one day things happen so what exactly is being done about things were all concerned about?

    Too bad she didn’t win. I guess at the end of the day though, it’s all about the journey. 🙂

    When will people stop putting others in a Box 📦 of Capability and UnCapibility ? Everyone has Gifts and Limits and for most the Ability to Adapt and or Learn. When you see someone who needs help be the 1 to give it

  38. Ryan Lewis on November 10, 2021 at 11:41 am

    another cruel world movie..

  39. Nouhad on November 10, 2021 at 11:43 am

    Excellent movie thank you for showing it and it’s free wow I will watch this again thank you very much

  42. Christina Klements on November 10, 2021 at 11:45 am

    When Wendy left her "home" and got to Market St, which she was not supposed to cross, the sign went to Cross and she hesitated for only a moment, yet in that moment I yelled Out Loud, "GO!!!" and she did. I kept telling her to Go, because the only way Is Forward. What an outstanding movie. Two Thumbs Up for this and all that were in it.

  43. Virginia Vasquez on November 10, 2021 at 11:47 am

    I have enjoyed Toni for decades. I always watch her movies. Her roles are so interesting. I just learned she is from Australia. She defined the difference between a movie star and and actress. She is indeed an actress.

  44. Walter Fisher on November 10, 2021 at 11:48 am

    Great movie. Best I’ve seen in quite a while. I love how she overcame her fears. Love the dog and his Star Trek outfit. All great actors.

  45. Ak Dragosani on November 10, 2021 at 11:49 am

    Dakota Fanning Is Truly AMAZING <3

  46. Terrence. Terry. Lynch on November 10, 2021 at 11:52 am

  48. kimberly bronson on November 10, 2021 at 11:52 am

    Wow, that was a GREAT movie. Dakota nailed it, she was amazing. If you’re a Star Trek fan this movie will be even better.

  49. Pam Love on November 10, 2021 at 11:52 am

    Excellent movie! Thanks YouTube! Dakota Fanning is a superb actress! 👍

  50. Dale Harapat on November 10, 2021 at 11:53 am

    Great movie to watch while Globalists keep us locked down, jabbed, masked and terrorized with their CCP Virus hysteria. This is a breath of fresh air from the evil that is being spread by tyrannical politicians.
