Awakenings

1990

Penny Marshall
Director

Based on a true story, a group of chronically ill patients are brought back to 'life' through an experimental drug administered by new doctor Williams in a Bronx hospital (Bainbridge) during the late 60s. But the effect is short lived. Some wonderful acting especially from De Niro in one of his best roles. One of my all time favourite movies.
