This cinematic masterpiece is the brilliant portrayal of legendary Irishman Christy Brown (Daniel Day-Lewis) who, despite crippling cerebral palsy, learned to use his one controllable extremity -- his left foot -- to become an accomplished artist and writer. MY LEFT FOOT won Academy Awards® in 1989 for Best Actor (Daniel Day-Lewis) and Best Supporting Actress (Brenda Fricker) and earned Oscar® nominations for Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Adapted Screenplay (1989).

Critics Consensus: No doubt most will come to My Left Foot for Daniel Day-Lewis' performance, but the movie's refusal to go downbeat will keep it in viewer minds afterwards.
Gritty yet uplifting tale of artist with cerebral palsy.
