How do you raise an autistic child in this world? It is this question that is at the center of “To find you”, a drama proposed by M6 on January 25. We tell you what you need to know about this two-part TV movie with Laëtitia Milot.
To find you: a TV movie on autism not to be missed
Last September, M6 broadcast Learn to love yourself, a touching fiction on the delicate subject of trisomy 21. A few months later, the channel does it again with another two-part TV movie in the same vein: To find you. No Ary Abittan headlining this time but Laëtitia Milot, a star of the small screen in France. If the title may mean something to you, it’s normal since it was offered on the platform somersault since the end of last year. The time has come for its prime time broadcast on January 25.
In the manner of learning to love yourself, To find you evoke the struggle of parents who must find how to educate a different child. Autism is a real obstacle in the social and personal development of a child. It limits interactions with others.
The TV movie features the young Lucas, 11, as he disappears from his home one fine morning. His parents, Marion and Alexis, recently separated, are very worried. While a child would already have a hard time coping by being on their own, they know that the situation is even more critical for someone with autism. The two parents will do everything to find him while facing the demons of their past.
In addition to Laëtitia Milot, the cast relies on Assaad Bouab, Florence Thomassin, Guillaume Faure and Arthur Jugnot. For the role of Lucas, two performers (Viggo Ferreira Regier and Andy Binard Duval) take turns to play him at different ages.
Along with the dissemination of To find you, M6 has developed an entire evening dedicated to autism. A good idea, to connect reality and fiction, as well as to highlight a disability affecting several hundred thousand people in France. A debate onset then the documentary Autistic child, and after will be offered after the TV movie.
