Day Lewis' re-creation of writer/painter Christy Brown's condition is so precise, so detailed and so matter-of-fact that it transcends the carping about casting an actor without cerebral palsy.

An intelligent, beautifully acted adaptation of Christy Brown's first book.

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.

Jim Sheridan's My Left Foot must be the most passionately empathetic film about a physical affliction ever made.

Not only does Day-Lewis master the physical aspects of the role, the minute-to-minute struggle of almost complete paralysis, he lives the painful genesis of an artistic character.
