The intentions behind “A Boy Called Po” are not only good, but honorable. In this story of a young widower dad raising an autistic son, screenwriter Colin Goldman’s clear intention is to chip away at some of the stigmas associated with people—particularly children—on the autism spectrum. “A Boy Called Po,” directed by John Asher, has some problems, although it always feels a little unfair to criticize a movie like this. The script tries to do way too much, but the film also moved me quite deeply a couple of times, mostly in the scenes between father and son. In multiple scenes, doctors and therapists explain various treatments, and what aspect of autism they were designed to address. The language is quite technical, but for those not familiar with this world, these sequences may be enlightening. And then there is the presence of the mighty Burt Bacharach, who contributed the score for the film, his first original score in 17 years.
In the opening sequence, David Wilson (Christopher Gorham) is shown standing over his wife’s casket, and then crying alone in bed. His son Patrick (Julian Feder), “Po” for short, is shown wandering around a playground, casting a long shadow, lost in his own world except for the moments when he’s bullied by a bigger kid. This sequence goes on for quite some time, all as Bethany Joy Lenz sings Burt Bacharach’s monster hit “(They Long To Be) Close To You,” made famous initially by The Carpenters. If you didn’t know Burt Bacharach’s involvement in “A Boy Called Po,” the foregrounding of the song in these opening scenes might be confusing. It’s a music video, essentially. But we’ll get back to Bacharach.
When David Wilson’s young wife falls victim to cancer, he is left a single working dad with the sole responsibility of caring for his sixth grade son with autism. Patrick, who prefers to be called ‘Po,’ is a gifted but challenged child who was very close to his mother and unable to communicate his own sense of loss. As father and son struggle to deal with life after mom, they each begin to withdraw into their own worlds. David into the high pressure job he’s close to losing and Po drifting away from the school where he’s bullied into his magical fantasy world, the Land of Color, where he’s just a typical carefree boy with a rich cast of other worldly companions. The growing divide between father and son and the challenges of single parenthood of a special needs child threaten to separate David and Po permanently. Based on a true story, the bonds of love between a grieving father and son are tested in the most real way in Po.
