Quotes

Captain Keller: Miss Sullivan, I've brought you your first month's salary. You've done quite a job. You've taken a wild thing and given us back a child.
Anne Sullivan: I taught Helen one thing. 'No.' Don't do this, don't do that. I wanted to teach her 'yes'.
Captain Keller: Well, you'll have all the time you need, now.
Anne Sullivan: Will you help me, Captain?
Captain Keller: Yes. How?
Anne Sullivan: Don't undo what I've done. The world is not an easy place for anyone. To give Helen her way in everything is a lie to her. You've got to stand between her and that lie. Don't give in.

...told with emotion, heart, and feelings.

I am SO proud of Disney for presenting us with movies with emotion, heart, and feelings, and not just another talking animal, or silly kids picture. On the heels of "Selma, Lord Selma", and "Ruby Bridges", comes this re-telling of the classic story of deaf, & blind Helen Keller, and her courageous teacher, Anne Sullivan.

Still not sure if the story was actually NEEDING another modern version, I gave it a chance because I love the story. I was very pleased and impressed with the acting talents of the two leads, and I enjoyed the gentle and touching way Disney presented them. a wonderful story (no doubt) but an even more wonderful presentation. Does it outdue the original? NEVER. Nor did "The Parent Trap" outdue it's original, but both versions are worthy of your attention. And this is no exception. A gem of a movie. Share it with your family.

And thanks AGAIN, Disney. You are slowly restoring my faith in your "family films" again.
