Autism treatment inspires movie


“Ezra” follows Max, a stand-up comedian who lives with his father Stan and struggles to co-parent his autistic son Ezra with his soon-to-be ex-wife. The movie stars Bobby Carnnavale, Rose Byrne and Robert De Niro and was directed by Tony Goldwyn. The movie’s producer, William Horberg, brought his son to the out-patient program at Bradley Hospital’s Autism Center for life-changing treatment in 2021, after connecting with Rick Granoff who is on the board at Bradley. Granoff was instrumental in bringing the movie premiere to Rhode Island in May. “Ezra” can be streamed online on Netflix, Prime, Apple TV and other streaming services.
