A Portrait of my Family
I’m still emotionally stunned in the wake of my first viewing of Disney’s original movie, “Tru Confessions.” Previous comments have praised Shia LaBeouf’s outstanding performance as the developmentally-challenged Eddie. Equally compelling, though, was Clara Bryant’s portrayal of Tru.
Tru’s attitude toward the difficulties and embarrassments caused by Eddie are truly believable. When we’re honest with ourselves, we would’ve most likely felt the same way at her age. Bryant’s depiction teenage angst was as spot-on as I’ve ever seen in a movie of this genre.
This movie let loose a stream of emotion, as our family has been coming to terms with a developmental disability. Our 3 year old son Jacob was diagnosed with a form of autism in January 2002. We’ve been dealing with frustrations that are not unlike those experienced by the Walker family. Jacob’s behavior is hard to explain, and often embarrassing. He also has a 2 year old sister, making this film hit even closer to home than expected. I can see our Lauren defending Jacob in much the same was as Tru, when she shoved her former crush into the river for having tormented Eddie. One couldn’t help but cheer for Tru and her heroic defense of her defenseless brother.
If you have a family member afflicted with a developmental disorder, this film is a must-see. If you have family members that have a hard time coming to grips with a developmentally-disabled child in your home, direct them to “Tru Confessions.” It will become a standard reference work for those wishing to understand our beautiful family.
I really liked Shia LaBeouf in this movie–he protrayed a handicapped person very well. But Tru’s attitude was a lot worse in the movie than in the book. She was a total jerk in the movie, but not as much in the book.
This movie was really touching, and I loved the part where Billy Meier fell in the lake!!!
