“Joyful Noise”, new Queen Latifah/Dolly Parton movie, includes character with Asperger’s

From the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

“Joyful Noise,” which was filmed in metro Atlanta last year and hits theaters Friday, is all about dreaming big.

Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton star as church members whose choir competes for a national title. Jeremy Jordan plays Parton’s grandson, a teen with a troubled past but hopes for the future (not to mention a huge crush). Dexter Darden plays a boy with Asperger’s syndrome who knows he is different and longs to find his place in the world.

And Keke Palmer portrays Olivia, who is juggling a demanding mother (Latifah) and a persistent suitor (Jordan), along with the pressure of competition and plenty of family drama.
