WMG / When Marnie Was There

Go To

Anna has Asperger's syndrome.
She always has an "ordinary face", parties aren't her thing, she has trouble making friends, she has a tomboyish appearance (girls with AS often wear boyish clothing because it's more comfortable), she is unintentionally unfriendly, and she sees herself as separate from everyone else, on the outside of the circle. Like many people with Asperger's syndrome, Anna becomes depressed because of her general isolation. She shows improvement by the end of the movie, but it is possible for people with Asperger's syndrome to get over some of their symptoms.
