Percival Isaac Cohen Dalton: Because I don't want her to lie down. I want her to stand up! AND I want her to sit up when she's having her dinner... AND if she is going to have breakfast in bed, she is going to do so with me... And I'm going to sleep every night with my wife in our room! And, if I want to hold my wife, or kiss my wife, I will do so anytime or anywhere I darn well choose to like right now.

Blind Artist
1 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Annie Crane can still remember the day her Mama walked away from her. She was only three years old and was slowly loosing her sight. By the time she was five, she had been adopted by a wonderful childless couple and was completely blind. But the memories of what things looked like stayed like pictures in her brain. And somehow, Annie was able to get down on canvas what she saw in her mind.

She was discovered by an art dealer and got to show off her work. She made lots of money and was on top of the world. But when a man announced she was the husband of her natural mother, Annie's world came crashing down. She still held a lot of anger against the woman.

The story that was woven was such a heart-warming tale. Things aren't always as they seem. Sometimes the ugliest things are actually a gift of love. You'll just have to watch this one to see what I'm talking about! The ending is something worth waiting for.

There was a funny scene involving Percival and Nellie. It's also worth watching!
