MND and 22-Year-Old Me

MND and 22-Year-Old Me

The youngest person with motor neurone disease in Scotland, Lucy Lintott, is becoming paralysed - she can no longer walk unassisted and she's losing her voice - not great for a chatterbox like Lucy. Even though she's been given only a few years to live, Lucy is determined to do what 22 year olds do - including dating. Over a six-month period, this lover of food and country music reveals how she is struggling to hold on to her personality and her infectious laugh. Lucy visits Newcastle where she meets a stand-up comedian who can still crack a joke even though he can't speak. At a clinic in Edinburgh, Lucy's voice is recorded with her sister's, to create a personalised synthetic voice. And in an emotional photographic sitting with portrait photographer Rankin, Lucy confronts two polarised parts of herself - the perfect Lucy pre-diagnosis, and the broken Lucy three years after diagnosis.

One of the greatest films ever made. Please do not watch it on TV because Janine Finlay tuned the editing in such a precise way that simply pausing for a commercial break can literally affect the way your brain processes this masterpiece.
