Description

1969. Dr Malcolm Sayer (Robin Williams) takes up a post at Bainbridge Hospital, New York. Among his patients, he discovers a group of forgotten survivors of the 1916 Sleeping Sickness epidemic - a virus that turned its victims into living statues. He is particularly drawn to one of these victims, Leonard Lowe (Robert De Niro). With a new experimental drug, Dr Sayer discovers a vital key to 'awakening' Leonard and the others to the joys and pains of living, whilst awakening in himself long dormant capacities for love and friendship. Inspirational and critically acclaimed, 'Awakenings' is based on a true and haunting story.

Great film, but very sad. Even more so when you think it's based on a true story. I cried buckets when I first saw it :oops:

I blubbed like a little girl too.

You should read Dr Sacks' book. Very well written, and obviously an even more accurate recounting of the tragic events, as well as other interesting cases in his career.

Scores 7.5 out of 10 on ]IMDB which is good. With those two leading actors it would be worth the money regardless imo
