Simply including The Book of Eli on this site of disability movies is giving away a major plot point, so do not read further if you don’t want to be spoiled…
Still here? Ok, this movie belongs on this site because the major plot twist at the end reveals that the main character Eli is blind. As Hollywood movie producers are wont to do, Eli is portrayed as having superhuman hearing, and can miraculously hunt flying vultures, shoot at snipers and fight off seven attackers at once through the wonders of echolocation. Oh, and he’s got the protection of God while he’s on his mission, too.
The Book of Eli has English, French, and Spanish subtitles, and is available in Blu-ray format. A soundtrack and 27 x 40 movie poster are also available.
A murder rocks a South Korean town and suspicion quickly falls on a reclusive, mentally challenged — and alibi-free — young man (Bin Won). When an inept public defender botches the boy’s case, his mother (Hye-ja Kim) sets out to prove her son’s innocence. Acclaimed director Joon-ho Bong (Memories of Murder) explores the lengths a mother will go to protect her child in this atmospheric crime thriller.
Mother has English captions and subtitles, and is also available in Blu-ray format.
