Author: Goodmovielover from United States

Michael Ontkean and Amy Irving are simply splendid in this marvelous, old fashioned love story, This is the kind of film that is just not made anymore! A touching love story about an up and coming singer, who one day meets and falls in love with the girl of his dreams. However, he must come to terms with the fact that she is deaf. Wonderful soundtrack , with one of the most beautiful theme songs from a film. Great ending too!
