In 1989, the movie “My Left Foot,” starring an up-and-coming Anglo-Irish actor named Daniel Day-Lewis, was released. The movie detailed the biography of Christy Brown, an Irish artist and writer born in the 1930s. Brown was born with cerebral palsy, and the only limb he was able to control was his aforementioned foot. He was raised among his siblings rather than institutionalized and abandoned, as was common at the time, and the world is richer for it. Brown wrote the autobiography from which “My Left Foot” was adapted, and his art has been exhibited in his native Ireland and in New York.
