Fifteen minutes in, the Sheriff hands Dr. Lovell a photocopied newspaper article with a by-line of "by Mark Hutton". Mark Hutton is credited as having worked on props for the film. See more »
Nell pronounces Jerry as "Jay/Jae" she should have used his named correctly because she was not physical speech impairment , her distorted language was due to way she learned the language from due to her mother's aphasia and hence the twin speak she developed with her sister. Any new word or name she would have heard would have been pronounced as such since she was not mentally challenged or autistic even. See more »
It was a great and simple story. Simply about a woman raised in the wild, unable to speak proper english due to her mothers stroke and she is trying to be brought into "civilisation".
Neeson and Foster are the stars of this film!! Not just because of their star status but they really showed talent in this film. Foster is brilliant as the vulnerable but independent Nell and Neeson is great as her "guardian angel".
This film has its funny bits but the ending... well if youre dead sensitive, get the tissues out. When Nell speaks in the courts, I was causing a flood!!!!
I give it a 10/10. Definetly one to keep forever.
