My Left Foot Academy Award Winner! Academy Award Winner! Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! Academy Award Nomination! 

By Tom Keogh

Daniel Day-Lewis won a much-deserved Oscar for his wily, passionate performance as Irish artist and writer Christy Brown, whose cerebral palsy kept him confined to a wheelchair. Filmmaker Jim Sheridan (In the Name of the Father) adapts Brown's own autobiography for this spirited piece, focusing on the sometimes-difficult fellow's formative years in his large family and in love with sundry women. Day-Lewis is inspired, and Brenda Fricker (also a recipient of an Oscar for her part in this movie) is almost luminous as Christy's dedicated mother. So, too, are Ray McAnally as the hero's stormy father, and Hugh O'Conor (The Young Poisoner's Handbook) as the child Christy. All in all, this is a complete pleasure for viewers.

Academy Awards

My Left Foot received Academy Awards for Best Performance By an Actor in a Leading Role (Daniel Day-Lewis) and Best Performance By an Actress in a Supporting Role (Brenda Fricker) . My Left Foot also received Academy Awards nominations for Best Picture of the Year (Noel Pearson - Producer), Best Achievement in Directing (Jim Sheridan) and for Best Screenplay Based on Material From Another Medium (Jim Sheridan, Shane Connaughton) .
