I liked this film!
20 February 2000 | by littlejake4See all my reviews

I thought this movie was great. It was very hard to find but after reading the book I knew I wanted to see the movie.

The movie begins with Harold moving to Harvard and adjusting to life on campus, like finding your classes except it is a little harder for Harold because he is blind. The movie reminded me how university life can be fun and stressful at the same time. I loved it because it follows so closely to the book. I have not seen too much of Steve Guttenburg's work but he truly gives an outstanding performance in this movie! The film is a good rent
