The moving, poignant, and darkly funny story of a physically-challenged
young man, the small town target of cruel jokes, who becomes starry-eyed
when an American film crew comes to a rural outpost near his community
to shoot a major motion picture. "Cripple Billy" eventually finds some
respect and affection from among those who were the genesis of the
ridicule. But, in the hands of master dramatist Martin McDonagh, when
Billy finds redemption among the townsfolk, a final twist of fate turns
the tables again, in true mythic fashion.
