There are a lot of controversies surrounding the portrayal of autism and its sufferers. Savants, Asperger’s, and more mental illnesses are often stereotyped and portrayed with a Hollywood glow. Will this continue in The Accountant?
The film revolves around a math savant who has more affinity for numbers than people (aka, every smart person role ever created.) On the outside, he simple works for a small town CPA office. But behind closed doors, Christian runs every account for the criminal underbelly and soon the police are on his trail.
Starring Anna Kendrick and Ben Affleck, could this be an interesting feature? Thanks to this latest clip, we’re very invested.
The Accountant is out November4th!
