Possible spoiler, although I truly don't believe it will ruin the film for you.
28 February 2004 | by (Virginia Beach, VA) – See all my reviews

I saw "A Single Light" a few years after it was produced on HBO in the form of a showcase of after school specials. The photography and content of the film drew me in with it's simple story of a young deaf girl in an Italian village. Her story intersects with that of an archaeologist in search of a unique sculpture of the Christ Child located in one of the village's churches. There is a terrible accident that causes the young deaf girl to be ostracized from many people in the village. Her need for redemption and the quest of the archaeologist come together in one of the best portrayals of forgiveness and reconciliation I have ever seen in film. Nia Peeples ("Fame," The TV series) and William Atherton (the reporter in "Diehard")both give poignant and understated performances as the lead characters.
