The set design and cinematography is only surpassed by the strength of the actors. From the opening you are pulled into the world beauty and privilege. The struggle is within the characters; One man's determination to communicate and not give up, one child's need to communicate while being deaf, dumb and blind. It is very Helen Keller -esque with an unbelievable twist. Both characters years of frustration and seemingly insurmountable odds develop into a love and friendship for each other that transcend the teacher pupil relationship. It is two hours long and worth every minute.
