See this film!
on 12 March 2008
I didn't want to watch this film, but my wife persuaded me. I'm glad she did. The acting is superb. Brenda Fricker carries off the role of Christie's mum flawlessly. Daniel Day Lewis is so convincing as the cerebral palsy sufferer that it is a shock to realise he is acting! Hugh O'Connor acts the young Christie and is equally convincing.
