Preview: An Autistic Young Woman sees Salvation in “Star Trek” in “Please Stand By”

Dakota Fanning plays our heroine, a San Fran Cinnebon seller whose rigidly scheduled life includes dreaming and typing up spectacular “Star Trek” adventures, which she then wants to enter in a “Script a New ‘Star Trek'” contest.

Alice Eve plays her somewhat indulgent sister, Toni Collette her therapist and Patton Oswalt, of all people, plays a cop trying to track down this too-old-to-be-called-a-“runaway,” a cop who “gets it.”

It looks charming even if “Please Stand By” seems to be fated for direct-to-video (streaming) release in January.
