I barely remember Blythe Danner playing the Annie Sullivan role. It's Mare Winningham's performance as the legendary blind-deaf Helen Keller that I remember most because of how she approached the role. Winningham's performance as Keller is unforgettable and only a slight indication of her talent as an actress. I'll never forget Helen typing away on a braille typewriter. After Keller discovers how to sign into the hands of her lifelong teacher, Annie Sullivan, she continues to write and communicate with the world through her writings. Keller is one of those legendary American figures that must be handled with care and Winningham approaches her with that gentle understanding.
