My Left Foot - 1989

Director: Jim Sheridan
Writers: Jim Sheridan & Shane Connaughton
Starring: Daniel Day-Lewis, Brenda Fricker, Ray McAnally

The true story of Christy Brown (Day-Lewis), a man born with a severe case of cerebral palsy, who overcomes his debilitating condition to become a renowned Irish poet, artist, and author.

The film's the most heartwarming true story I've ever seen on celluloid, and it firmly cements DDL as the best actor of all time in my mind. Saying anything more would be entirely superfluous. A+
