And it was not J. Edgar.
And I am certain I have asked this before but with new ones on Hoover, Thatcher and Monroe, it comes to mind.
MY LEFT FOOT with the fabulous, and too seldom seen, Daniel Day Lewis who stars as Christy Brown, a spastic quadriplegic born to a large, poor Irish family. His mother recognizes the intelligence in her son who everyone else regards as a vegetable. Eventually, Christy matures into a cantankerous writer who uses his only functional limb, his left foot, to write with. I had read him before seeing the movie but this one blew me away.
Biopics about rising over adversity win me over. And the authentic feel of every scene did too.
