...told with emotion, heart, and feelings.
25 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

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.
