A major box office hit in Sweden, Simple Simon is a colorful comedy reminiscent of art house favorite Elling. It’s the story of 18-year-old Simon, a boy with Asperger’s syndrome who likes space, science and circles. Simon’s world is turned upside down when his older brother Sam breaks up with his girlfriend. To make his life work, Simon needs structure. He needs things to follow a certain pattern, with the same schedule, the same meals, and the same clothes, week after week.

Sam is the one who has always taken care of Simon, making his favorite food and helping him to understand human behavior. But with Sam depressed over the breakup, everything changes and Simon’s world turns into chaos. Wanting things to return to normal, Simon decides to find Sam a new girlfriend. Simon knows nothing about love. But he has a scientifically perfect plan. Balancing humor and seriousness, the film makes us see the world from Simon‘s point of view. As the perplexed Simon, Bill Skarsgård (brother of True Blood star Alexander and son of A Somewhat Gentle Man lead Stellan) affirms the family’s acting talent.
