Drama movie about a lady taking care of mentally disabled children


I saw this movie back in 2013 with my family on tv. It was probably one of those tv movies made in 1999-2001.

The story was about a lady who had to raise children that had some kind of a mental disability. There was a small boy (age 4-5) that was scared of color red, hyperactive boy (age 12-13) who had anger issues and an older boy who had Asperger’s syndrome (There was probably more children but I couldn’t remember).

Here are some scenes that I remember. All of them were at a birthday party and the hyperactive boy was upset about losing in MONOPOLY. The Asperger’s syndrome boy was taking photos of shoes which he later showed to other kids from school (They were laughing at him and they also said something like: “Can’t you take better pictures?”). The hyperactive boy made a hole in the wall and he stuck in it (He was also screaming: “I wanna go OUT!”).

Wish I could provide more but that’s what I remember.

    1. No, that’s not the one. It wasn’t a documentary it was a comedy-drama. Good guess though, pretty close to what I described.

  1. Magnificent 7 (2005)

    “The ‘catch’, for want of a better word, is that all four of the boys have some kind of disorder, especially the likes of Curtis (he is allergic to Christmas and is panicked by anything that is red in colour), Christopher (he has Asperger’s Syndrome, is very naïve and trusting, responds awkwardly and sometimes inappropriately to social situations, and cannot understand idioms and sarcasm), and (if I remember correctly) Davey has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)”
