Films with an autism subtext

I have watch dozens of films and some of them have an implicit autism subtext.

* Lilo & Stitch (2002): Lilo Pelekai could be autistic because of her special interest in Elvis Presley and voodoo. She takes things literally and sometimes overreacts.

* X-Men Film Series: The mutants can represent any minority but I believe they represent autistic people because they all have special abilities.

* The Matrix (1999): Those who take the red pill represent neurodivergent people.
