It has been seen all over the social media as it has become one of the hottest entertainment news. There is an ongoing Twitter debate with disability activists over autism themed film.
Sia engages told that the movie named “ Music” is based on autism. She had to face some disability specialist who questioned her about her movie. Sia engages used the word “special abilities” for people suffering from autism instead of “disabled” which causes a chaos all over social media.
Many activists were infuriated about this. She explained that the movie music has a non-autistic artist in the lead role. She told that she tried to cast a beautiful young girl who was suffering with autism in the movie. But it was very stressful for her to work in the movie. Which made her drop the idea of casting a character who was already suffering with autism.
So, Sia casted Maddie as her lead. People were still commenting on Twitter that this movie should not be released. It is against the people who are suffering from autism and doesn’t shoe appropriate material to the viewers as seen in the trailer.
Movies about autism have never been a debate of the town. But this time due to Sia engages inappropriate usage of words it has become a hot topic. You can also read about it in magazine for free.
Furthermore, Sia wrote that I have been doing a research since the past 3 years on autism and people related to it. I have done a though research and read about it after which she had directed the movie. But people still are not satisfied with her answers. Some of them are very against the movie and want it never to be released.
Sia says that how can anyone judge my movie even before it has released. Activists and other people need to think with some positivity so that they can see the good side of the movie as well. Some of the people are also in support of the movie as they says that Sia has been making some great movies. This can also turn out to be a block buster.
But the debate goes on, on twitter and other social media platforms. Movies about autism or any other disability can be challenging for the director and well as actors so let’s see what comes up in the movie Music.
