User Review


Rating: 9/10

Had the privilege to see this film at the San Diego filled festival before premieres in theaters. Was very impressed and emotionally moved very early on in the film. Well not quite on the level of ' The theory of everything', movie will definitely tell that your heartstrings and have you crying pretty quickly. Myself being disabled, especially struck a chord for me to see how things used to be for people with disabilities and made me thankful that I was born when I was in that things have progressed so well in the last century. Andrew Garfield gave him moving performance it as robin Cavendish. He better get his Oscar speech ready. I also really enjoyed some aspects of the film that are not addressed another disability films, namely the relationship between the disabled and their children. This film does so it was really devastate you when you get to see that Robin wasn't really able to be there physically as a father to his son another power house is claire foy.plays Robbins wife who is the one who advocates for him and inspires him to keep going. This film also previews you to the horrors disabled people had to live through before Robin and Diane became advocates. While the ending of this film is not as uplifting as 'the theory of everything', for some reason that movie devastates me much more than this one did. I wonder if that had anything to do with who was in charge of the film. This phone was produced by the couple's son Jonathan, who basically made a love letter to his parents. You won't see the trials and tribulations of being disabled as much here, just a beautiful love story between two people. Highly recommend it.
