My Left Foot

Critics' Rating:
Release Year:
MPAA Rating: R
Genre: Biography
Director: Jim Sheridan

No one expects much from Christy Brown, a boy with cerebral palsy born into a working-class Irish family. Though Christy is a spastic quadriplegic and essentially paralyzed, a miraculous event occurs when, at the age of 5, he demonstrates control of his left foot by using chalk to scrawl a word on the floor. With the help of his steely mother -- and no shortage of grit and determination -- Christy overcomes his infirmity to become a painter, poet and author.
