“Incredibly powerful.” (RogerEbert.com)
This is the most moving experience you will have in a cinema this year. It documents the story of Simon Fitzmaurice, a young Irishman diagnosed with Motor Neuron Disease. As he says, the best part of living with this disease is simply living. As he begins to lose the use of his limbs and then his voice, he clings more tenaciously to life. With the help of his family, he refuses to capitulate to death. Using eyegaze computer technology to communicate, he directs his first feature film, My Name is Emily. This is a strong and articulate film about a man who refuses to be broken. It will stir your emotions and provide the best kind of inspiration. Narrated by Colin Farrell.
