I'm reading the book now and am looking forward to seeing how it works as a movie.

Worthwhile to read the autobiography by Sacks as well as view the movie. The book puts the film in context.

This movie was touching and inspiring. So far I think this is one of Robert DeNiro's most spellbinding roles. He captured the disorder so well that I believed it! Robin Williams did a wonderful job too. I was sad to watch him play this role and to think this amazing actor has passed away.
This movie made me appreciate life and have compassion for those who can't do the everyday things we take for granted.

Heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time.
