For Screen and Country – My Left Foot (#53)
Written by Brendan Wahl on January 14, 2019
This week, the guys take to the poverty-stricken Irish slums to talk about the 1989 Oscar-winning tearjerker – My Left Foot. They talk all about Daniel Day-Lewis’ insane commitment to the performance, the liberties that the screenplay takes with some of the real events, some of the odd music choices and much more. Plus: Jason pisses off Irish people.
Plus: Brendan and Jason roll the dice to find out what movie they’ll be covering next week. What did you think of My Left Foot? Does it tug on your heartstrings? Is it effective or maudlin? Is this a case of the movie being solid with two amazing performances or is it great all the way around? Get at us on social media and let us know!
