This is a beautiful, heart warming movie. Made more so as it is based on an actual like lived in an Iron Lung. The acting is terrific. It is joyous, sad, and hopeful.

John Hawkes will win the Oscar for best actor for playing a character similar to the one played by Daniel Day Lewis in My Left Foot (for which he won an Oscar.) William H. Macy is fun to watch in whatever he does. Helen Hunt is always monotone to me, but people like fearless, and in this movie she is. Very enjoyable movie. Smart screenplay.

What a remarkable movie about a truly wondrous man. An ode to the human spirit under such bizarre circumstances. Anyone who who is bored with life should see it and perhaps not in a preachy way (no pun intended) rethink his or her own approach to sex,marriage,disability and the idea of life worth living. This movie stays with you for a long time. It's fun,quirky and thought-provoking. The music,actors direction and subject were so well done. Bravo!

This movie had more nudity than ever, however, it was done in such good taste that it did not detract from the story line, a unique opportunity to see and understand the terrible results of the polio epidemic. Thank God for the Salk and Sabine vaccines. A wonderful movie.

A true story about the meaning of passion and true love. Because of the writing and sensitivit;y of the story, the nudity seems incidental.
