Storyline

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.

Wish I could see it again
9 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

I always loved watching this movie. It always made me feel good, gave me hope and made me laugh. It is one of my all time favorite movies and would watch it over and aver again. Great acting by all characters. Now

  • I was looking to buy it and can't find it. Very sad. I am now the


mother of a blind child and would love to watch it!!!! Sometimes I need to feel a little hope and would love to watch it. I would also love for my other children and my sons friends to see it. I is a timeless movie. I can't believe that I cant find it for sale and the video stores don't even rent it. If anyone knows when it will be on or if it is for sale anywhere please leave a note. Thanks
