Tracing birth parents, and facing a shocking discovery which affects the lives of many.
30 March 2008 | by magoo-35See all my reviews

Excellent handling of a very delicate subject. Full marks to the director. And the cast led by Christopher Eccleston and all supporting actors, gave extremely touching performances. The film is an eye-opener, and i felt that the final scene, the most significant and touching in my opinion, sums up the fact that even prejudice may be overcome. It was interesting and amusing at the same time, to see how the work colleague tried to interact with Harry, the male birth parent. It is very easy to fall into the trap of turning such scenes into a comedy, but this film certainly did not make fun of the disabled or handicapped and instead helped one respect and admire them.
