Malcolm's screen credit
Bruce mad at the soccer referee

Bruce at home


"I said, 'Cry? What on earth would he cry for? When people get struck down they are angry as hell.'" - Malcolm on his character in NY Daily News 5/19/02

Synopsis - Official

A paralyzed athlete who, through his disability, comes to know himself. When Bruce, an arrogant young soccer player, is crippled by a sudden illness, he enters a church-run home for paraplegics, rather than return to his family as an object of pity. His youthful vigor and sarcastic wit immediately mark him as a misfit in the genteel country home. Irked by its petty rules, he broods and writes poetry until he meets Jill, an attractive independent young patient who has adjusted to her disability. When Bruce and Jill join forces and rebel against the hypocrisy of the institution, they find themselves falling in love and against all odds, they plan to wed.
