Gentle and Profound
19 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The original Miracle Worker with Bancroft and Duke is one of my all-time favorite movies. However, I did not care for the '79 remake, so when I saw this movie begin on cable, I expected more of the same.

What a great surprise! Somehow the movie manages to capture the magic of people connecting, overcoming, living. The acting is subtle and solid, the writing lyrical and vibrant. While it does not have the drama of the original Miracle Worker, its steady pace, cinematography and selective focus on Sullivan's and Keller's life make it an astonishingly good movie. I highly recommend it for anyone in the mood to be inspired.
