When the kinetic Rory moves into his room in the Carrigmore Residential Home for the Disabled, his effect on the home is immediate. Most telling is his friendship with Michael, a young man with cerebral palsy and nearly unintelligible speech. Somehow, Rory understands Michael, and encourages him to experience life outside the confines of home.
James McAvoy would spend up to 12 hours a day in a wheelchair while filming.
Michael, I made a mistake. I thought I could do this but... I'm leavin'.
Rory: Michael, don't beg, it's undignified... Michael, parakeets don't mate with armadillos, that's the end of it!
Siobhan: That's a filthy bloody thing to tell him!
Rory: Is it? It's the truth!
