LIFTS THE HEART MOVIE
27 November 1999 | by bjrlkSee all my reviews

This is an excellent old movie that our family enjoyed many times. All I can say is too bad it is not showing today. My son and I watched this movie every time it came on. He was about 7 or 8 yrs old at the time. The movie is the story of a little boy who talks in the form of jibberish. Thought to be retarded, a teacher takes an interest in him & the results are amazing. Can't tell more, would give away the story. See it if possible.
