6. My Left Foot

Here's another wonderful inspirational movie based on a true story.

Christie Brown was born in Ireland in the 1930s, and since he had cerebral palsy was not expected to achieve much.

However, he became a writer and painter, using his left foot to work with.

As if this wasn't enough on its own, the movie features an extraordinary performance by able-bodied actor Daniel Day Lewis.
