  • Waxamillion's rating of the film Mission to Lars

    The film starts off as a very simple documentary. A sister & brother want to connect with their brother who has fragile x syndrome & lives in a care home. He has wanted to meet Lars Ulrich from Metallica for years and the family try to make it happen. The great thing about this movie is that Tom's fragile x means that nothing can go to plan. Watching the family grown and understand Tom is amazing. I cried.
