Sweet, moving story of a retarded girl trying to be normal
27 June 1999 | by (Lombard, IL) – See all my reviews

Once again Meredith Baxter pulls it off by playing Winnie, a retarded girl who was put in an institution at an early age. David Morse played her retarded boyfriend. Her sister comes to visit her whenever she can, but as years passed, she died of cancer, and Winnie felt very alone, except for her friendship with David Morse, and other classmates. She worked hard to lead a normal life, and she did a darn good job at it!
