My Left Foot


The true story of Irish writer and cerebral palsy victim Christy Brown. Paralysed from birth, Brown (Daniel Day-Lewis) is written off as handicapped 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, and along the way, falls in love. The film was nominated for five Oscars, taking home two for the actors.
