On World Autism Awareness Day we honor those around the globe who are on the autism spectrum. In America alone, 1 in 54 children are diagnosed with autism, a staggering statistic that finds millions without the necessary support to live meaningful lives.   TheArchive is proud to have acquired a miniseries called Family Pictures based on the novel of the same name by Sue Miller. It was directed by Philip Saville and stars an amazing cast including Anjelica Huston, Sam Neill, Kyra Sedgwick, and Dermot Mulroney.   Spanning forty years, this four hour mini-series brings to life a powerful and intimate portrait of the passion, upheaval, and pain experienced by one family. The Eberhardts embark on a journey of redemption to regain the happiness of the past as they have come to appreciate their decades-full family photo albums. The challenges that all families face are compounded with the birth of a child on the autism spectrum and how that challenge changes them all forever.   Anjelica Hus
