Storyline

On November 4, 1970 on The CBS Evening News, Walter Cronkite reported on a true, horrific story that was about to rock the country. A 13-year-old girl was discovered in the small Los Angeles suburb of Arcadia who was still in diapers, barely able to walk and unable to speak. Kept in severe isolation by her parents with virtually no human contact for more than 10 years, she was confined to her bedroom, tied to her potty-chair and left to fend for herself. As Cronkite noted, it was one of the most horrendous cases of child abuse ever to surface. Much like an animal, the girl spat, sniffed and clawed. She had none of the traits or characteristics of conventional human behavior, nor could she comprehend such modern societal conveniences as silverware or bathroom etiquette. Her emotional development was practically non-existent, and she could not speak. With this heartbreaking story, the world was being introduced to a fragile, beautiful teenager who seemed and behaved like an infant, or ... Written by Steven Zeller

nature vs nurture
13 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this movie the argument of nature vs. nurture is very relevant. Katie was affected by both nature and nurture in her socialization. The doctors said that she was born retarded, which would have come from the genetic or nature side of the argument. Her environment around her also affected her nurture side of her socialization. In her environment, she was locked up and separated from the rest of the world. This affected her because she was unable to see the rest of the world and how everyone was being socialized. This could be seen in the movie when they started taking Katie to school. She was 14 years old, but only in a kindergarten class. She was that far behind everyone else. The one thing in the movie that goes against all of this, was that she had her own kind on language. Doctors could not describe it, but she was somehow able to communicate by it. And by building off of that she was able to understand sign language. (http://genealogy.about.com/cs/geneticgenealogy/a/nature_nurture.htm)
