    • Synopsis
    • Wendy (Dakota Fanning) sees things differently:
      She’s fiercely independent, with a brilliant mind and a mischievous sense of hilarity.
      Wendy also has autism.
      To her, people are an indecipherable code and the world’s a confusing place. She’s always had a hard time figuring it all out and she just wants a chance to be accepted…just like everybody else.
      But inspired by no-nonsense carer Scottie (Academy Award® Nominee Toni Collette), Wendy comes of age and escapes from her care home on the road-trip of a lifetime to deliver her 500-page Star Trek script to a Hollywood competition.
      Trailing chaos, with Scottie and her big sister Audrey (Alice Eve) in hurried pursuit, Wendy leads us on a captivating and heart-warming adventure; showing the bravery it takes to be your own person.
      Please Stand By offers its actresses two standout performances and a career-defining role in Wendy.
      A refreshing, bold and intimate journey that brings a unique human perspective to life.
