Tourette on TV
I own a movie, called 'The Tic Code', which is an excellent movie, and accurately portrays TS in a sensitive way, while having a (for the most part) great story line. I really enjoyed it. The main characters are a little boy and a well known musician, both with TS.
Mind you, after I finished watching it, I just exploded with tics, and the severety didn't let off for about an hour. I had read somewhere that when you watch somebody else tic, it will get your tics going. I hadn't really believed it, but watching this movie proved that it was true.
Another movie that portrays TS and OCD is 'Matchstick Men'. I don't like the conclusion, as it makes it look like TS and OCD are just psychological, and stress related. It's an interesting movie, but whoever made it doesn't have any real understanding of TS. It makes it look like people can just stop having tics and be perfectly normal if their psychological problems are dealt with.
