Rory O'Shea Was Here

Rory O'Shea Was Here (2004)

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.
My Two Cents: Powerful, funny and sad; Makes you feel guilty for taking life for granted, but not in a preachy way.

NetFlix Rank: Really Liked It
IMDB Rank: 9/10
