My foot!!! Left Foot!!!
Daniel again at his best!..but the true character i feel in the movie is his mother, very strong and dedicated character..no wonder she won a best supporting actor oscar award for that..it is such a beautiful and well carved character..an ideal mother who just believes in her son..well..see the movie..u will find out..
but there is so much of contradiction in real life..Christy Brown's wife reportedly did not take care of him in later days..he resorted to drinking and smoking heavily. And also..here is a quote by Brenda who played Christy's mother in the movie..
"(on her character in Casualty) Megan was the mother we all want, full of love and understanding, I'm none of that, I'm not a mother and never will be and I wasn't even a very good wife, I'm not even a good nurse to my father now he's old and frail. I'm much more rebellious that Megan. I couldn't do her job ever. Just go down to the hospital and watch what they do for an eight of the salary I earned pretending to be a nurse. It makes you blush. You break your heart with people being kicked in the teeth by life. I couldn't handle it, I'd be reduced to tears"..oh God..Movie and Life are so so different...
