Synopsis

The inspirational story of Helen Keller, struck blind, deaf and mute by illness at 18 months old, is told in this moving adaptation of the award-winning play by William Gibson. Patty Duke gives a heartbreaking performance as Helen, with Anne Bancroft as Annie Sullivan, the partially sighted teacher who, with patience and skill, brings a desperate, violent seven-year-old Helen back into the world with sign language. Both leads (who had also played the roles on Broadway) won Oscars for their performances and the movie gained three further nominations.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
