Ben X

Ben suffers from Asperger's Syndrome, a type of autism that makes communicating with people difficult. But in the virtual world of online gaming he reigns supreme. Tired of being constantly tormented by bullies in the real world, Ben nurses dreams of vengeance, but a burgeoning relationship - in his virtual world and the real one - distracts him from his goal. An affecting psychological thriller from Belgian director Nic Balthazar, who debuted with this adaptation of his own novel, itself based on a true story.
