Storyline

Young Helen Keller, blind, deaf, and mute since infancy, is in danger of being sent to an institution. Her inability to communicate has left her frustrated and violent. In desperation, her parents seek help from the Perkins Institute, which sends them a "half-blind Yankee schoolgirl" named Annie Sullivan to tutor their daughter. Through persistence and love, and sheer stubbornness, Annie breaks through Helen's walls of silence and darkness and teaches her to communicate. Written by Christina Dunigan <minstrel@wf.net>

good movie, actor played their roles very well
24 February 1999 | by See all my reviews

This was a very good movie. Helen was played very well. This movie helps people not take things for granted. It is an incredible story of how anyone is capable of doing anything. Annie was also played very well. She taught Helen many things. The closing scene when Helen realizes that everything has a name is very moving. The love shown between Annie and Helen was really an awesome thing.
