  • Overview
  • Details
In the 1950s and '60s, before autism was better understood by the medical establishment, doctors blamed the condition on frigid mothering. These "refrigerator mothers" lived with decades of guilt while their children underwent questionable therapies. The mothers tell their story for the first time in this stirring documentary, which also chronicles how Bruno Bettleheim got the cause of autism wrong and how others later challenged his error.
