The Mighty

there are some movies that can bring so much inspiration to ur life that u have to watch over and over again.. Peter Chelsom 's "The Mighty" is one of them..

warning: spoiler ahead

the movie is based on Rodman Philbrick 's novel "Freak the Mighty".. the uplifting tale is told through the eyes of 14-year-old Maxwell Kane, who is constantly teased and bullied because of his enormous size and learning disabilities..

Max's life changes forever when Kevin (Kieran Culkin), known in the movie as "Freak", moves into the neighborhood.. Kevin suffers from Morquio's Syndrome, a disease that causes the bones to stop growing while the internal organs continue to grow.. he can only walk with the help of crutches and leg braces..

Kevin opens Max's mind to the world of the imagination using the legend of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table.. what Kevin lacks in physical strength, he makes up with a brilliant mind.. Kevin and Max complement each other and become a perfect match..

Imagining themselves as a knight called "Freak the Mighty", the pair go about rescuing maidens (abused wives), slaying dragons (the local punks) and walking high above the world..

here is the music video of The Mighty..

My favourite quote from the movie:
"A Knight Proves his Worthiness by his Deeds."
