When the kinetic Rory moves into his room in the Carrigmore Residential Home for the Disabled, his effect on the home is immediate. Most telling is his friendship with Michael, a young man with cerebral palsy and nearly unintelligible speech. Somehow, Rory understands Michael, and encourages him to experience life outside the confines of home.
Fantastic, with a twist at the end *spoiler ahead*
A fantastic movie Collins portrays the character beutiffully. She playes a woman who in the space of around 10 years marries 8 people, without divorcing any of them. It turns out she also has an adopted daughter who tries to find her mother (and father...). When complications arrise she is arrested and the truth about her past is out to her family and friends (and husbands). With an emotional twist at the end. I strongly recomend this movie!
