Three Relatively Obscure Movies For Geeks, Aspergers, And Indigos
1 ~ A.I. Artificial Intelligence
I have a friend who fits all three categories - geek, Asperger's, and Indigo. He loves this movie and, although he is an adult, he identifies strongly with the main character, a little boy played by Haley Joel Osment. This is a fascinating film from Steven Spielberg. Be warned that it is very sad in many ways.
A.I. Official Movie Trailer
Movie Soundtrack ~ A.I. - John Williams, Composer
Composed and conducted by John Williams, famous for the scores of Star Wars, E.T., Harry Potter, and many more.
A.I. Super Toy Teddy - Official Movie Merchandise
This toy is very expensive, but could be the perfect present for someone on your list if you have a big budget! (If you've seen the movie, you know this is a great gift!)
2 ~ The Last Mimzy
This is another favorite of my geek Asperger Indigo friend whom I mentioned above. I like this movie better than A.I. because it is not as sad and has a happier ending. Of the three films on this page, The Last Mimzy is the most suitable for children (and wonderful for adults as well).

Movie Soundtrack ~ The Last Mimzy - Howard Shore, Composer
Howard Shore is the well-known composer of The Lord Of The Rings score.
Books That Include The Short Story On Which The Film Was Based ~ "Mimsy Were the Borogoves"
A collection of stories by the husband and wife team who wrote "Mimsy Were The Borogoves" (included).
Classic science fiction stories by Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Arthur C. Clarke, and more.
3 ~ Bicentennial Man
Although Bicentennial Man stars Robin Williams, it is not a comedy. There is much to ponder in this poignant film. Plot elements remind me of the struggle Arwen faces in The Lord Of The Rings, as she, an immortal elf, falls in love with a mortal man.

Movie Soundtrack ~ Bicentennial Man - James Horner, Composer
Composed and conducted by British classical composer James Horner, who also composed the score for Titanic.
