In 1945, a young boy arrives in a small Georgia town on a bus from which his mother was abducted and murdered. Alone he sits quietly and everyone becomes convinced that he is deaf and mute. Deciding that silence offers some power and protection, the boy decides to remain mute and just listens to all that is being said around him by people who think that he cannot hear.Written by

Norm Jenkins finds Sammy's suitcase and learns his identity but doesn't tell anyone about the suitcase. Yet the entire town knew and used his full name, presumably starting soon after his first day in Barrington, and the police never searched for his mother after that first day even though his name was known.

It's really beyond me what people see in this movie! I enjoy all sorts of movies but this one is like a shell with absolutely NO SUBSTANCE! It was SLOW, UNREALISTIC, and the entire movie seemed to revolve around the moment when he spoke which wasn't very dramatic at all as the characters were NOT even near to convincing.
TO ME IT SEEMS LIKE THE PRODUCER HAS MADE A MOVIE BASED ON THE FACT THAT A STORY LIKE THIS ONE HAS SOME SUBTLETY TO IT AND THEREFORE IT WILL BE AND BE PERCEIVED TO BE MUCH MORE THAN IT IS. IT'S WORKED, PEOPLE HAVE VOTED IT INTO THE 7'S BUT THE FACT REMAINS THAT THIS MOVIE IS VERY VERY BLAND...
