He moves to Keele University, where Mary has a cleaning job, appointing himself the unofficial greeter to new students, a role rewarded by an honorary degree in 2013. He also gets to manage its unofficial football team, named after him, and in 1992 talks his way into becoming the kit man and mascot of his beloved football team Stoke City. For Neil there are no boundaries – his interest in religion leads to his becoming a lay preacher whilst he presents himself at the House of Commons for tea with MP Tony Benn and at Cambridge University, where he strikes up a friendship with Prince Andrew, which results in his being on the queen’s Christmas card list. With his indomitable attitude overcoming early set-backs and the death of his beloved mother for Neil life is – marvellous.
Plot: Dramatisation of the true story of the life of Neil “Nello” Baldwin. Born with a mild learning disability but without the burden of social embarrassment & how his inexhaustible ability to see the good in any situation overcame any stigma society tried to label him with.

Simply ‘Marvellous’. This word itself describes the movie. As 2014 is reaching its end, we can see many lists for best movies/TV series floating on the internet. And that’s how I find this movie with IMDb rating 8.2. So naturally, I put it on my watch list. And yes that was a decision I certainly didn’t regret. This is a biopic and is one of the best dramas I watched in 2014. It is a TV movie aired on BBC TWO.
You will get fully involved with the life of Neil. A man who has learning disabilities but in fact he is differently enabled. He is sure of everything. For him life is happiness. He does everything what he wants to do. Every new person he meet is very good friend of him. He can simply ask any thing and surly gets it. A very good job done by director Julian Farino. Also a very nice story and script by Peter Bowker. Outstanding acting by Toby Jones and Gemma Jones as Neil and his mother Mary. They both gave a memorable performance that will certainly add some accolades in their chest. I enjoyed the movie, every bit of it. It plays with your emotions. You will laugh and will want to cry at some points. Full of fun yet teaches you the philosophy of a great life. And be careful, if you miss one line, you may miss a very beautiful message/ outlook on life.
In every department it’s a perfect movie. Great story and script. Good direction. Camera captures every emotion very cleverly. Back ground music goes with the movies pace. And of course very good use of choir sings popular songs accompanied by ukuleles. And in some department I have no hesitation to compare it with one of the greatest movie of all time “Forrest Gump”.
I will give it a 10 on the scale of 10.
I can’t believe I missed this when it was released . It is such a funny heartwarming tale.
