Typically, the words you would use to describe a film about a man born with cerebral palsy overcoming obstacles to become a success would be “inspiring” or “uplifting” or “powerful” or perhaps “preachy” (you know it’s true sometimes). The word I would use to describe “My Left Foot,” the 1989 story of an Irishman born with (yada, yada, see above) would be “fun.” There’s a sense of “let’s don’t take this too bloody seriously” conveyed by the story and its star, Daniel Day Lewis, that makes this film truly special. It’s a story of acceptance that also accepts the moviegoer.
