Mysterious Creatures

2006 NR

Timothy Spall and Brenda Blethyn star in this compelling drama based on the true story of Bill and Wendy Ainscow, a working-class British couple who spend their lives caring for their daughter, Lisa (Rebekah Staton), who suffers from Asperger's syndrome. Driven to desperation by 30 years of Lisa's unmanageable and often hostile behavior, Bill commits suicide, and Wendy makes two unsuccessful attempts to end her life. David Evans directs.
