Christopher Lambert's best performance since Highlander.
This has to be Christopher Lambert's best performance since Highlander. Lambert really shows the audience what he can do and when he puts all his effort into it, Lambert can be a really good actor.

Lambert plays Gideon, a mentally retarded man who can't read, write or even do simple maths. He is sent to an old people's home to brighten up the live's of those who live there. As time goes by Gideon makes new friends and learns to love one another.

I'm a massive fan of Lambert's. I was really shocked by his performance. He was superb as Gideon. We are all used to see Lambert star in action movies, put even in this moving drama movie he's excellent. This movie is a very touching story and it'll have you in tears in the end.
