Descriptions My Left Foot: The Story of Christy Brown
A film about life, laughter, and the occasional miracle.
In this true story told through flashbacks, Christy Brown is born with crippling cerebral palsy into a poor, working-class Irish family. Able only to control movement in his left foot and to speak in guttural sounds, he is mistakenly believed to have a intellectual disability for the first ten years of his life.
