Critics Consensus

A tender and witty portrayal of a family coping with autism, The Black Balloon is heartfelt without being schmaltzy or moralizing.


When Thomas and his eccentric family move to a new home and he has to start at a new school, all he wants is to fit in. But achieving that goal is made more challenging when his father puts him in charge of his autistic older brother, Charlie.
