Atypical

Atypical

Available on Netflix
"I'm a weirdo; that's what everyone says," says the very ATYPICAL high school senior Sam (Keir Gilchrist) when we meet him. Maybe so, but this weirdo has friends, a loving family, an all-consuming interest in penguins -- and something relatively new, a desire to find a girl to date, even if his mom, Elsa (Jennifer Jason Leigh), says he's not ready. As he sets about his quest with his typical absorption, diving into research and taking advice from the people who care about him, Sam soon learns that connecting romantically isn't as easy as fixing a computer. People don't make a lot of sense to Sam, but slowly, surely, he's learning to live in the big, bright, confusing world along with all the other imperfect people around him.
Starring Jennifer Jason Leigh, Keir Gilchrist, Michael Rapaport
