Patty Duke played herself in a brilliant portrayal
27 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

I don't know if she knew the impact this had. On many people. The fact that Patty Duke went public with her life is an incredibly astounding concept. The private battle we sometimes go through with our lives is made easier by knowing that others have experienced what we have: that we are not alone. The brilliant talent she posseses in her acting only reflects the beauty courage and strength she had to have, and obviously did. I am only one person this story has probably impacted. One person of many. I have the same struggle in my life and have for twenty years. I want to meet Patty Duke, an aspiration.
