i stop for awhile posting comments and discussions here to watched this movie few minutes ago. i am touched by the story of Helen keller who happen a normal and smart when she is a child but due to the illnesses she got, it turn her blind and deaf. i admire Miss Sullivan for her eagerness to teach Helen of different things,although the parents of Helen didn't believe here capacity to make Helen a responsible Child. It is not easy to teach Helen specially sign language. i am also learning sign language before and started sharing it to our neighbors who are deaf and mute. it's very challenging task to teach this kind of people, i felt hard and difficult at first but because of our concern to this individual i start loving the task. the secret is patience and hardwork, so that you can make it. i am very happy now seeing them learning with the sign language, we taught them, everytime they saw me they never forgot me and it touches my heart.

I admire you for doing this thing. I also like to learn sign language because I think it's a challenge and will help people with disabilities. Yes, people with disabilities are the nicest people in the world. They are forever grateful for even the smallest thing you do for them. My step-son has autism and I am taking care of him. Though he seemed normal and can talk and a good listener. He is also sweet and would sometimes hugs and kisses me anytime he feels like. But there will be time that he would be hitting me and kicking me. Patience and understanding are two things that he really taught me.

Annie Sullivan was an exceptional teacher. And Helen Keller was an exceptional student who went on to lead a spectular and important life. I hopw you will take heart from watching this movie as you learn sign language. Who knows maybe someday you will inspire someone with your work.

Hi julyteen, The story of Helen Keller is indeed one of the greatest in history. I have always marvelled at what Miss Sullivan was able to accomplish. It took much patience and understanding. Blessings.

I really enjoyed that movie. It has been a long time since I have seen it. I learned some sign language when I was a kid and most of it has stuck with me. My oldest son is now learning sign language he is really enjoying it. My daughter now wants to learn. I have come across people that are deaf, and it was difficult for others to interact with them. I tried and it they respected that.
