My Left Foot (1989) Movie Study Guide

IFI. My Left Food Study Guide.

My Left Foot is an adaptation of Christy Brown’s autobiography.  Much of the action and events of the film are centred on his character. The story is told in flashback, from the book that Mary, nurse to the adult Christy, is reading. As the central character, Christy is portrayed as a kind of emotional hero in spite, or rather because of his cerebral palsy.
