NotesFilms about disability don't come better than this. Films about anything at all don't come much better. A triumph of adapting a book written with one left foot to a film made by hundreds of people. One rider though, since Christy is disabled from birth with C.P. and isn't 'cured' his character could have been played by a disabled actor. See the film, read the book, reflect. From the book of the same name by Christy Brown
