Irish JigBy weeguy from Midlothian , 11 Apr 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]I missed this film in the cinema, so had been eagerly awaiting the DVD release. Im glad I didnt see it in the cinema I hate crying in public.
Focusing on the relationship between the two protagonists and those around them, this is a beautiful film sad, funny, uplifting, hopeful.
Michael has been in institutions all his life, abandoned by his high flying father as an embarrassment to his career. On first meeting Rory he is shocked by his rebellious, foul-mouthed nature (coarse language is not tolerated here Rory he is told within two minutes of his arrival oh dear!).
However, when he discovers that Rory can understand him, the two soon become comrades fighting against the system that Michael has never before thought to question.
We follow them on their journey to independence which could not be achieved without each other. Michael discovers that he is capable of much more than he was ever allowed to dream possible and for the first time in his life has a real friend in Rory.
Steven Robertson is stunning as Michael and James McAvoy adds another string to his bow with an impressive performance as the incorrigible Rory.
See this film.

Bitter sweet storyBy BelGel (23 reviews) from Belfast , 30 Sep 2012One of the best movies I have seen for a long time, funny and moving, keep the hankies near-by, you will cry at the end.
Dance inside and out!By a customer , 30 Jul 2012This was one of the funniest, moving and cryable films I've ever watched. Having a disabled brother it made me realise more than I have ever realised about his way of life. Great display of emotions and telling the reality of people in this situation. Brilliant! Don't miss it!

Hilarious and touchingBy kitty-amour (3 reviews) , 13 Jan 2012Enjoyed this film so much - The acting of Robertson & Macavoy was exceptional - The fim made me laugh out loud and sob with sadness in equal measures. Can't recommend it highly enough - Indeed, I think EVERYONE should have to watch this film .... it would certainly improve attitudes and misconceptions surrounding people with disabilities. Totally fab and highly recommended to all
