I loved this film when I saw it for the first time and now, knowing the real story behind it, I love it even more. In my opinion the movie is great in every aspect – the music, the adaptation, the acting. I even found a short documentary about the real Awakenings case and the makers of the film and actors did such a good job trasfering it to the big screen. In fact, Robin Williams depicted Oliver Sacks perfectly. And even though the movie was extremely sad and made me cry at least a couple of times, the creators managed to add a message that I think is really important and beautiful – that we should enjoy life and be happy and grateful for the little things we have.
Also I can post the short movie I found if anyone is interested ?
