Daniel Day Lewis in cracking form.,
This review is from: My Left Foot [DVD] (DVD)
True stories, or films based on true stories are rarely the stuff of Oscars. Allto often they get bypassed by production money, for the lack of stunts and hyper realities; thus if made tend to be b-movies, or acted by a cast of supermodels who lack credability. To find such a moving story about Christy Brown, who overcomes his cerebal palsy,is a little gem, watch this if only for Daniel Day Lewis's amazing performance, which is on a par with John Mills's transformation.
