| Very Strong!
Losing a loved one can take its toll, but about to lose a child after the spouse does in a wreck is disheartening. John and Peg are deaf parents who have a beautiful daughter named Lisa. En route to the wife's parents, they get hit by a drunk driver. It killed the husband, and the drunk driver is killed himself. Upon recovering, Peggy(Marlee Matlin) is told the sad news about John, and she goes extremely ballistic. Totally in great pain, Marge Duffield(Lee Remick, 1935-91) takes her grief as a weapon, and decides to have Lisa to raise and nurture. Little does she know, she's doesn't know any sign language, and her view is very hazy about such things. Peggy really shows this closed-minded relative, that she can raise her daughter, and she is a good mother. I liked it when she really lashed out on Marge, by smacking her silly, yelling,"GET OUT! GET OUT! GET OUT!" That's showing her. Deaf people need to start making a stand, from "Children of a Lesser God", now this, Maybe if Marge learned more about the deaf earlier, the relationship would have been stronger. Now it's time to truly heal. This movie is very gripping, and very emotional, I enjoyed it all the way through! 4 out of 5 stars!
