The first of Daniel Day-Lewis’ record three Best Actor Oscars was won for his stirring, difficult performance in this 1989 biographical docudrama. He plays Christy Brown, an Irish spastic quadriplegic who eventually achieved acclaim as a poet, using his one controllable limb to write down his thoughts. Brenda Fricker also won as Oscar, as Best Supporting Actor, portraying Christy Brown’s dedicated mother.
