Storyline

An autistic child growing up in the 1940's and 50's with a mother who is bitter because her fear of success has denied to herself a possible career in opera. This anger translates into an over-protectiveness of her mentally ill daughter, even into the child's adulthood. But a loving sister, herself having an arm that is paralyzed, is a bastion against the limitations imposed by the mother and finally helps her sister to live a more full life. Written by BOB STEBBINS <stebinsbob@aol.com>

This is an absolutely amazing peice of cinema!
20 June 2003 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

I saw Under the Piano recently and I was blown away. The story is so stirring and touching and the acting is unbelievable. Any Megan Follows fan has to see this, she is so incredible- I have a new respect for her after seeing her performance- amazing. All the acting was amazing. Definitly a worth-while film!!
