Saw this film last night without reading any previously written reviews, and I thought it absolutely outstanding. The devotion that Robin and Diana had for each other, encountering such a life altering event only one year into a marriage would likely destroy most marriages. Addressing the ignorance and lack of empathy from the medical community must have been a real slog, and it is to their credit that such amazing inroads were made to better the lives of polio victims and other disabled persons. While the world has become a better place for those "outside the norm", there is still so much yet to be done. The cast and Jonathan Cavendish should win all the BAFTAs and Oscars possible. This film gave me hope that we can all be better than we are.

Not perfect but pretty damn close to perfection .
I've said it before the best films are based on real events . Andy Garfield deserves the best actor Oscar . This one will make you laugh , cry and smile .
One man's fight for survival against the odds with the loving support of his wife and son who incidentally produced the film .
Excellent casting , acting and directing by Serkis . Beautiful photography a film that ought to be depressing was actually somewhat uplifting and you'll want to see it again and look up the real story .
A British cinematic masterpiece worthy of an Oscar nomination.
Had the privilege to see this film at the San Diego filled festival before premieres in theaters. Was very impressed and emotionally moved very early on in the film. Well not quite on the level of ' The theory of everything', movie will definitely tell that your heartstrings and have you crying pretty quickly. Myself being disabled, especially struck a chord for me to see how things used to be for people with disabilities and made me thankful that I was born when I was in that things have progressed so well in the last century. Andrew Garfield gave him moving performance it as robin Cavendish. He better get his Oscar speech ready. I also really enjoyed some aspects of the film that are not addressed another disability films, namely the relationship between the disabled and their children. This film does so it was really devastate you when you get to see that Robin wasn't really able to be there physically as a father to his son another power house is claire foy.plays Robbins wife who is the one who advocates for him and inspires him to keep going. This film also previews you to the horrors disabled people had to live through before Robin and Diane became advocates. While the ending of this film is not as uplifting as 'the theory of everything', for some reason that movie devastates me much more than this one did. I wonder if that had anything to do with who was in charge of the film. This phone was produced by the couple's son Jonathan, who basically made a love letter to his parents. You won't see the trials and tribulations of being disabled as much here, just a beautiful love story between two people. Highly recommend it.
ETA: now that critical reviews of this film have come out, I am highly insulted that critics wanted to see more of robin's struggles than triumphs. i never believed the term 'inspiration porn' but i do now. it disgusts me that people wanted to see the grittier side of robin's illness. our health problems are not for you to exploit. i feel just enough was shown to get the point.
