The Sea Inside

The always excellent Javier Bardem (Before Night Falls, The Dancer Upstairs) stars in this dark but moving drama from writer/director Alejandro Amenábar (The Others). It's based on the true story of a quadriplegic who spent most of his adult life trying to change Spain's laws on euthanasia. Yeah, it's not exactly a cheerful subject, but Bardem invests his character with a curious (and seemingly contradictory) zest for life. This is a quiet, humane and expertly written drama sure to stir some debate. In Spanish with English subtitles. 125 minutes
