Teen struggles to accept autistic bro in enjoyable drama

6

The Black Balloon is a mid-teen, coming-of-age drama. Thomas (Rhys Wakefield) is desperate to fit in and meet girls at his new school in Sydney, but he suffers embarrassment about his autistic brother Charlie who he wishes was just like normal kids. A budding romance with attractive and spirited Jackie (Gemma Ward), who is on his swimming class, helps Thomas learn about acceptance and worth.
