Through his leading role in the three Superman films, Christopher Reeve became so closely identified with the superhero that he wasn't just seen as the actor who played Superman, he was Superman. Which is why the tragic riding accident which left him paralysed from the neck down shocked the world. Superman was not superhuman. It is also why he is now the world's most recognisable person in a wheelchair. In true superhero style, Christopher Reeve refuses to resign himself to the life of a quadriplegic, and is actively campaigning to raise the profile of spinal-cord injury victims and research. Although he was initially told that he would only ever be able to move his head, he can now shrug his shoulders and breathe alone for increasing periods of time, and is determined that he will walk again. It is this extraordinary courage and determination that has made Christopher Reeve the internationally admired figure that he is, and it is this bravery which makes this autobiography about his paralysis and his journey to recovery such a powerful and moving story.
  • Christopher Reeve Cover

    Attore statunitense. Noto al pubblico per aver intrepretato Superman (1978) di R. Donner, è in realtà un attore carismatico, capace di rendere con grazia una grande varietà di ruoli. Anche se la sua carriera è costellata da risultati alterni, non vanno dimenticate le sue interpretazioni incisive in film quali l’ironico e avvincente Trappola mortale (1982) di S. Lumet, I Bostoniani (1984) e Quel che resta del giorno (1993) di J. Ivory e l’intelligente Rumori fuori scena (1992) di P. Bogdanovich. Nel 1995, in seguito a una rovinosa caduta da cavallo, rimane completamente paralizzato ma con ammirevole coraggio continua a lavorare nel cinema e nella televisione. Approfondisci
