Simon has Asperger syndrome which means he has trouble interacting with people and also a fondness for circles and punctuality. Unable to live with his parents any longer, Simon moves in with his big brother Sam and his girlfriend, who isn't exactly overjoyed at his arrival. When his erratic behaviour causes the couple to split up, Simon vows to find his brother the perfect replacement ­ with hilarious consequences. Simple Simon was Sweden's entry for the 2010 Academy Awards and is excellent viewing for fans of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. Preceded by short film Little Brother (7 mins) by Callum Cooper, selected for Sundance Film Festival 2011. Part of Glasgow Film Festival 2012: Youth Film Festival.
