My Left Foot


Based on the story of Christy Brown, this highly acclaimed film depicts his struggle for a normal life. Born with cerebral palsy into a poor, working-class Irish family, Christy was able only to control movement in his left foot and to speak in guttural sounds. With the help of his strong-willed and dedicated family and his own sheer courage and determination, Christy not only learns to grapple with life's simple physical tasks and complex psychological pains, but he also develops into a brilliant painter, poet and author.

Daniel Day-Lewis and Brenda Fricker give Oscar winning performances in an emotional tale of life, love and one family's incredible sense of courage. Also star Declan Croghan, Ray McAnally, Hugh O'Connor, Fiona Shaw, and Ruth McCabe.

This is a brilliant movie, only watched it the other week. Christy Brown suffers from a cerebral palsy and he has a lot of courage. The movie is based his life, it is enjoyable for all the family. If you haven't yet seen it I recommend you watch it!
