good script and acting.
10 July 2005 | by (Taiwan) – See all my reviews

Handicapped people is everywhere, physically or psychologically. The depiction of the Down Syndrome kid is lively but not overwrought, and the interaction between him and Dianne Wiest is very moving. Sometimes the line doesn't intend to dramatize but still makes you sob a little. Dianne here gives a great acting consists of neurosis, sensitivity, and tenderness. Her performance is reminiscent of the oppressive character in "I am Sam", also very delicate and persuasive. Handicapped boy is amazingly true to life. The way he talks and frowns is just like real Down Syndrome patients. Also worth mention is the wonderful rural scenes of Ireland.
