The true story of the frightening, lonely world of silence and darkness of 7-year-old Helen Keller who, since infancy, has never seen the sky, heard her mother's voice or expressed her innermost feelings.

Having just recently regained her own sight, the no-nonsense Annie reaches out to Helen through the power of touch, the only tool they have in common, and leads her bold pupil on...
I've been banging my head trying to figure out a movie I once saw a few years ago. I'm going to describe it to you as best I can, in hopes someone can figure it out for me.

The scenes between Duke and Bancroft naturally play out as if they were straight out of a silent movie (barring the actual noises and Bancroft's admonishments, of course), and the scene roughly halfway through where both leads are locked in the dining room fighting over how to eat lunch properly plays out like an intricately choreographed fight scene.
