Mozart and the Whale by Jerry and Mary Newport, with Johnny Dodd
A PEOPLE correspondent in L.A., Dodd collaborated with the Newports, both autistic, on a memoir about their tumultuous but triumphant love story. Josh Hartnett and Radha Mitchell star in the film version, released in April and on video last month. Says Dodd of Mary (an artist) and Jerry (a motivational speaker): "They hope their story will illustrate what's possible when you don't give up."
