Dig deeper into your understanding...
This film is a great story about love and healing. While the main character, Amy, is suffering a lot of emotional anguish due to the loss of her own child who was deaf, she begins to heal when she takes a job at a school for the deaf and has a positive influence on them, one especially, Henry Watkins. He helps Amy feel needed as a teacher. She learns to cope with the loss of her own son and develops special teacher-student friendships with all of the students at this school for the deaf and blind in Boston.

One of the lighter moments includes a football game against a hearing school.

Ok, I LOVE this movie! It's one of my all-time favorites. Henry Watkins was my favorite character, because he really expresses his emotions both through his sign and his voice. I wish this was on DVD.
