My Left Foot

February 9, 2007

You want some acting, here’s some goddamned acting: Daniel Day-Lewis in My Left Foot. If you haven’t seen this film, rent it now. I first saw it ten or more years ago, and having watched it again last night I can honestly say it still has the same impact the second time.

Plot: Christy Brown was born with cerebral palsy in 1930s Dublin. At first thought to be mentally retarded, he eventually triumphs over adversity to become a famous writer and painter.

And it’s a true story.
