    I think this an amazing true story about what happened to patients 30+ years in a vegative state from sleeping sickness were give an experimental drug called L-dopa. Starring Robin Williams and Robert De Niro .

    I've watched the movie but also saw the documentary on these people. To go to sleep when you are a teen and wake up in your 60's. Doing the Charleston because it was the last dance you learned so many years ago. Many stopped using the drug when the side affects dominated the results. But one lady was very feisty and kept taking it even if the tics and involuntary movements made it difficult to even comb her hair.

    Yeah, much like the WT has done to us. Took our childhood away and replaced it with the living nightmare of doom. Only then when you are old, you wake up. I wish I was as feisty as that lady. But maybe one day I will be.

    I saw this movie in high school and wrote a paper on it for my Honors English class. It made a huge impression on me. Great movie!

    It is good to know how music effect these people. I'm reading Oliver's book Musicophilia and happened to find the above movie "Awakenings" the quality is poor but very interesting I first seen this movie about 10 years ago from a dvd at our public library, I found it very interesting as well. There was another one DVD about a man that had serious brain injury but came to life when he heard certain music he used to play when he was young, it brought back his memories but I can't name it.
