My Left Foot
Paralyzed from birth, Irishman Christy Brown is written off as retarded and helpless. But Christy’s indomitable mother never gives up on the boy. Using his left foot, the only part of his body not afflicted, Brown learns to write. He grows up to become a well-known author, painter, and fundraiser.
His portrayal by Oscar-winning actor, Daniel Day-Lewis was simply fantastic.
