My Left Foot is the true story of Irish writer and cerebral palsy victim Christy Brown. Paralyzed from birth, 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, and along the way falls in love with nurse Mary Carr.
One of Daniel Day Lewis' greatest pieces of acting work, I don't need to go into too much detail, it's available in BLU-RAY... if you must have, you must have it. It's an awful cover, not sure what they were thinking when whomever designed it.
