Children's Version
4 September 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I definitely see this movie as the children's version of Helen Keller's story. The language used in this film is easier to understand, but not true to the time period. The horrors of Annie's childhood were also either overlooked, or barely touched. Because the character's have untouched pasts, it was harder to get emotionally involved in the story. The acting wasn't bad by any means, but when compared to the emotional roller-coaster that the Patty Duke version took you on, this remake falls short. I would show this movie to my younger children only if I thought they weren't mature enough to handle the ealier version of the film.
