FILM NIGHT: My Left Foot

17 Nov 2017 - 19:30 to 22:00

My Left Foot (1989, Classification 15) is a British-Irish biographical drama telling the story of Christy Brown, an Irishman born with cerebral palsy, who could only control his left foot. He grew up in a poor working class family and became a writer and artist. The film stars Daniel Day Lewis and Brenda Fricker who both received Academy Awards. It is a partly fictional biography, adapted by Shane Connaughton and Jim Sheridan from the book of the same name by Christy Brown. The film was well received by critics and audiences alike, with Daniel Day-Lewis being universally commended for his performance as a man with cerebral palsy, and many critics and film watchers ranking his performance as one of the greatest in all of film.
