I went to see a preview of this a couple of weeks ago, and I loved it. I took my Mum as she had Polio as a child but I was a bit worried she would find it traumatic. I needn't have worried, although the subject matter is sad it is actually a really uplifting story and the performances are great. Although my Mum was left disabled by the disease she came out the film saying how lucky she was.
Vitalogy It was the actor Andy Serkis who directed the film.
I went along to keep a friend happy not knowing much about the story. In fact I didn't know anything as my friend just asked me to keep her company. It was an amazing, enjoyable film and there wasn't a dry eye in the place at the end. There is a lot of humour in the film so it's not all doom!
