I loved the movie, the acting was amazing in my opinion. I cant’t imagine how difficult it was for Robert De Niro to play disabled person, especially that he did a grat job and it was really realistic.
The movie shows that despite the disability, they are normal human inside, they love and want to be loved, they want to dance, laugh, have family and friends but the disease takes it away from them and they seem to be aware of that. The scene when Paula danced with Leonard was really moving, she showed him that he is much more than his disability and that she really cares about him, while they were dancing he looked relaxed for a moment.
