The movie is directed by Emmy-winning filmmaker Nick Spark. 

A trailer for "Right Footed" had Cox talk about what it felt like growing up without arms. 

"I was so self-conscious about what people taught about me," she admitted. "Everyone had something I didn't have. I was different, and I knew that people reacted to me differently."
