Great follow-up to a great story
22 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen this film in a long time. But I remember really enjoying it and that it surprised me how good it was. The production values are generally TV quality. On the other hand, the story is very effective and personal. This was a portion of Keller's life that had not been portrayed often. Mare Winningham and Blythe Danner seem ideal for these roles. I wish it was more readily available for repeat viewing.

I didn't know that Keller went on to such heights of education and socialization. Considering where she came from, the amount of normalcy that she achieved is incredible. But it should never be forgotten that this was due to Annie Sullivan dedicating (and to a large degree substituting) her life so that Helen might have one. What dedication! What devotion! What patience with another struggling human being!
