SIFF Says:What has been described as an unconventional love story turns out to be not so far from the beaten path in this rom-com documentary from directors Antonio Santini and Dan Sickles. Dina and her boyfriend, Scott, have decided to move in together with the understanding that they are testing it out to see if a marriage between them would work. They both bring baggage to the table, with Scott’s Asperger syndrome and Dina’s autism and a previous abusive relationship, but are determined to work through their problems. Dina draws the audience in with its light sense of humor, a drastic dichotomy to the sensitive topics addressed. As a whole, Dina and Scott are no different than any other couple, dealing with familiar challenges of striving to coexist in an environment for the first time, only with a few additional problems in the process. They navigate sex, intimacy, family drama, and displays of affection like any other couple. Santini and Sickles show the audience that Dina and Scott are not letting their differences hinder them, providing a beautiful portrait of a modern relationship.
