So what is this one about?
This is another movie I chose simply through my netflix browsing. This time I stumbled upon it while drooling over James McAvoy (I mean, be serious!) So, they tell me what this one is about,
Although he has muscular dystrophy, Rory O'Shea (James McAvoy) refuses to surrender to the desperation of his life and instead embraces the potential in every day. When he moves into the Carrigmore Home for the Disabled and befriends the deeply bored Michael (Steven Robertson), a young man with cerebral palsy, Rory infuses his pal's life with renewed hope even as he struggles with his own demons.And how much did I pay to watch?
Apparently, a lot. I think I've only watched like five movies in a month. Yikes!!!!!!!
And what did I think?
Life enhancing? What an odd thing to say about a movie... I don't know that for someone like me (I mean someone with such a black soul), this is a life enhancing movie, however, it was entertaining enough. The guy who played Michael was amazing. I mean, I thought that he actually had cerebral palsy! Kudos to that incredible acting.
Rory was sort of annoying, but really hot and funny. And the girl who played Shioban (or whatever silly Irish name she had) is actually who played adult Briony in Atonement, which James McAvoy was also in!
I mean, it was similar to other Irish movies I have seen that are similar in message. So, all in all, it wasn't that incredible. I think I should watch more Irish movies, to actually see if they all are pretty similar. It is either about overcoming adversity (Billy Elliot, Rory O'Shea, Millions) or religions. Those silly Irish and their nice accents.
So what is the rating? (out of 10)
It might have been very average, but like I said, James McAvoy is hot hot hot hot hot.
So I would just give this a 5, but for his hotness, I will give it a 6.
