An article from the desk of author, Aidan McC.
I saw this Movie with Mum Tuesday 9 January. I thought that it was a beautiful love story. It was emotional, sad, and happy. At times it was a deeply moving movie.
It was about the story of a young man called Robin Cavendish, who met a beautiful woman, Diana, and they married. Then unfortunately he became paralysed from the neck down. This was caused by polio and he was only aged 28.
The movie shows everything that he had to go through and how he overcame barriers and helped other people with polio. His wife, Diana, was a great and a beautiful support for him. Many of their friends and their son, Jonathan, were great supporters too.
This was based on a true story and at the end of the movie they showed photos and videos of the real characters.
Andrew Garfield was Robin Cavendish and he did a beautiful job. His performance was just perfect. Also Claire Foy was Diana, Robin’s wife, and her performance was magnificent to watch as well. All of the other performances were also fantastic.
I give the Movie a rating of 8/10.
