| A very realistic film
I have worked with people with learning disabilities for more than thirty five years. When I first started there were still institutions such as the one depicted in the film. Sadly the way Walter was treated wasn't so far from the truth either (the most staff were kind and compassionate. Ian Mc Kellen plays the part very well. A gripping and poignant film.
