nice show from Stockard Channing
21 October 2000 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

Stockard Channing probably doesn't remember that she was in this movie, but it's a great biopic about a deaf stuntwoman. Deaf viewers should be warned that Kitty O'Neill was an oralist! Colleen Dewhurst and Brian Dennehy are also pleasing as Kitty's parents.
