The incredible real–life story of writer and artist Christy Brown

Born into a large, impoverished Irish family, Christy is paralysed from birth due to crippling cystic fibrosis and written off as a helpless infant, only able to make guttural sounds. But trapped within his damaged body is a brilliant mind, which finally finds expression thanks to his own determination and the drive of his indomitable mother, who never gives up on him.

Won 2 Oscars®

“My Left Foot is a great film for many reasons, but the most important is that it gives us such a complete picture of this man's life.”

– Roger Ebert, Roger Ebert.com

“Debuting director Jim Sheridan (who co–adapted the book with playwright Shane Connaughton) places this empty–coalbin saga in a well–directed home that mixes the tragic with the funny.”

- Desson Hove, The Washington Post
