ASPERGER'S ARE US | Netflix Premiere December 11th

For the members of the comedy troupe "Asperger's Are Us," it's easier to associate with a faceless audience than with their own families. No matter who the crowd, best friends Noah, New Michael, Jack and Ethan have one simple mantra: "We would much rather the audience appreciate us as comedians than people who have overcome adversity." In this coming-of-age heartfelt documentary, this band of brothers finds themselves at a crossroad. With real life pulling them apart, they decide to plan one ambitious farewell show before they all go their separate ways. People with Asperger's don't deal well with uncertainty, and this is the most uncertain time in their lives.

Alex Lehmann was born in France and studied film at Emerson College in Boston. He also directed BLUE JAY, his first narrative feature.

""Asperger's Are Us" rarely stretches to be funny or poignant or touching, and that makes this documentary all the more of each."
- Ken Jaworowski, THE NEW YORK TIMES

"Full of many quietly affecting moments that will bring a lump to your throat."
- David Noh, FILM JOURNAL INTERNATIONAL
