The accountant.

As if the degrading film Me before you wasn’t bad enough, now we have a new one to deal with, The accountant. According to the webste, the plot of the movie goes like this…Christian Wolff (Affleck) is a math savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King (J.K. Simmons), starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk (Anna Kendrick) has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise. In reality the movie is nothing but ableism and stigma. Portraying Christian as an extemely violent anti-social Aspie-he is clearly Autistic and the offical website features puzzle pieces. With the increasing rate of disabled people who becoming victims of crime and murder we don’t need this film. Affleck’s portrayal is completely unrealistic in several ways and must be boycotted by the disabiled communtity. How many names will be added to the list because of “the accountant” and movies like it? Autism speaks will really rake in the donations after this one. No doubt the producers will claim they consulted with Autistics and that their depiction is “acurate.”  Please!!! There is not a single soul on the spectrum who would call this garbage realistic. Speak up and do not go see this film!!!!
