Movie Info

Gaby: A True Story is about a young woman -- the child of rich European refugees living in Mexico -- who was stricken with cerebral palsy at birth. Though her body is completely paralyzed, her mind is unaffected, and she is able to become a college graduate and an acclaimed author. Rachel Levin won acclaim in the title role, but Norma Aleandro received an Oscan nomination for Best Supporting Actress.

    Every time Mandoki placed a foot outside Mexican territory, he made something terrible. He had to get back in order to redeem himself. A true story does not mean it will automatically become a good film and win hearts. What a bad stain for Liv Ullman! 53/100
