Psychologist Dr. Matthew Clark is the head of the Crawthorne State Training Institute, one of the first boarding schools for developmentally challenged children. Dr. Clark is sympathetic but demanding of his teachers and students. His approach of tough love is controversial. He takes a chance at hiring former aspiring concert pianist Jean Hansen as the school's music teacher, Miss Hansen who has no background in nursing, teaching or dealing with the developmentally challenged. She herself is trying to find her own place in life. She immediately bonds with autistic student Reuben Widdicombe, who she sees as needing special attention in light of his parents having not visited him since they enrolled him in the school two years earlier. The Widdicombes divorced shortly thereafter because of the pressures their relationship faced in dealing with Reuben. Dr. Clark sees Reuben as the type of child the most difficult with which to deal: Reuben understands just enough to realize that he is ... Written by
An excellent moving showing how truly talented Judy Garland was and how she truly cared about others, regardless of what the press has made her to be.
This movie is really an absolute marvel, it shows such a variety of
emotion. Judy Garland plays her part wonderfully and also her musical
talent is extraordinary. The way she interacts with the children in
this movie, is extremely moving. You can tell she really does care for
them, and the performance at the end of the movie really is one of the
most touching moments I have seen in a film. A++ for Garland, and
Lancaster is an outstanding character as well, Gena Rowlands also makes
a great effort in this film. The children who acting this movie could
not be closer to your heart, the way it is done you can actually still
feel for them to this day, they did a wonderful job casting for this
movie. I could not say enough of how the film was done, along with all
of the talent put into it, especially by Judy.
