Tom Sullivan is in many ways a typical student attending a Boston area college, he, showing his immaturity, partaking in, often leading, mainly harmless student hijinks with his pipe smoking friend, Will Sly. He funnels many of his energies into his music as a singer/pianist. Tom also happens to be blind, which he's been since a newborn due to being provided too much oxygen while in an incubator. Tom is independently minded, and wants to be treated just like any sighted person. Like most men his age, he is also in the pursuit of the opposite sex, in the process of which he finds that he falls in love easily. Through all these activities, Tom is affected by real life including the temporariness of college life, some not being able to get over their own prejudices of being sighted in their dealings with him, and coming to the realization that there are some things more difficult to do in life when one is blind.

I believe I saw this movie in 1983 when I was 15. I loved it. I fell in love with every character (especially Shari Belafonte), and their development within the movie. I saw an earlier comment that called this a "feel good" movie. Well, maybe. I don't think I felt particularly good at the end, but I did feel as though I had seen one of the best movies ever. In fact, I don't think I realized that Tom Sullivan was blind until the very end! I taped this movie from HBO once about 1995 but my friend taped a porno over it. Remember to remove those tabs! I feel empty without it. If there is a movement somewhere to get this movie on DVD I would surely like to join it. I can't believe it is not already. But considering the crap that is produced and then out on DVD, I am not surprised. I don't think that most of those in charge of releasing DVD would notice a gem of a movie if they saw it.A++++++
