When he was in fourth or fifth grade, Dylan was assigned to read Dr. Seuss’ “The Cat in the Hat” to a group of kindergarten students. Dylan’s approach was to memorize the book to help him during the actual reading. But even with the book memorized, he made so many mistakes that the younger students had to correct him repeatedly along the way.

Dylan is the son of filmmaker James Redford and he is dyslexic. Not very long into his father’s fascinating, straightforward and revealing documentary, “The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia,” you may find yourself wishing you had a kid as smart as Dylan Redford. The film airs at 7 p.m. tonight on HBO.
