Storyline

Alexandra McKay is a woman who's been blind for twenty years and is afraid that people will just try to get close to her because of her condition, so she ultimately stays to herself and her trusty guide dog, Emma. When Richard Chapman enters her life, a romance develops and McKay begins to let the outside world in to her private world. The prospect of an operation arises that will restore McKay's eyesight, but the fear of what it will do to her relationship with Chapman and the concern over the fate of her guide dog weigh heavily upon her decision to do the procedure.

A heartwarming love story of a woman and her dog
16 March 2000 | by SeanSSCSee all my reviews

This little gem is perhaps Elizabeth Montgomery's finest performance. She portrays a blind woman who first acquires a guide dog, becomes very attached, then is able to regain her sight and makes a decision that's a real tear-jerker.

Too often we forget what a brilliant talent Ms. Montgomery was, thinking of her only as "Samantha" but this movie is a vivid reminder of her excellence as a dramatic actress.

Unfortunately it's a hard movie to find. Look for it on cable and don't miss it if you have a chance.
