Director Diane Keaton brings a tender touch to Wildflower, a Lifetime cable-TV movie showcasing early-career excellence from Reese Witherspoon and Patricia Arquette. Witherspoon's big-screen debut in The Man in the Moon had premiered shortly before this movie's original broadcast in 1991, and a year earlier, Arquette had starred in a Keaton-directed CBS Schoolbreak Special, The Boy with the Crazy Brother. These rising talents are well served by Sara Flanigan's teleplay, closely adapted from her popular juvenile novel Alice. Set in the mid-1930s, the story follows two compassionate teens (Witherspoon, William McNamara) who discover and essentially adopt a partially deaf epileptic (Arquette) who'd been locked away by her psychotically abusive father. Beau Bridges and Susan Blakely provide different parental perspectives, and while Keaton doesn't always avoid Flanigan's tear-jerking sentiment, she handles it with delicate grace. Aiding her are a gifted cast and the fine cinematography of Janusz Kaminski, who would soon begin an enduring collaboration with Steven Spielberg. --Jeff Shannon

Well, I first saw this movie on TV when I was a little girl... it made such an impact on me that I checked the TV Guide for years to come waiting for it to be shown again. Finally, about 5 years later, it was and I managed to get it taped on VHS. This week, 10 years after I first saw it, I now have the DVD.
I love this absorbing film with the old-fashioned story-telling and the way the movie un-folds. We watch the characters develop as they grow within themselves (the acting is absolutely superb by everyone). There is a lot to learn from this story - which is a heart-warming gentle story about love, passion, friendship and family. There are a lot of sad moments yet this film also makes you laugh out loud at times too. This film is quite powerful in a naive sort of way. The ending is satisfying and you feel like you have also grown-up with the characters - in this romantic adventure of human spirit. A family film mainly directed towards girls - it'll make you want to go and hug your loved ones when you've finished watching it! I even love the music to this film and wish they would release the entire motion picture soundtrack on CD. Fantastic! Go watch it (especially if you're young at heart).....this is a truely lovely story that deserves more credit than a TV film.

I first saw this movie when I was about twelve years old and all I remember thinking was how brave Alice was. This is the type of movie that can really teach you something about never giving up on hope. I highly recommend WILDFLOWER to everyone and anyone, even kids. I would give ten stars if amazon allowed me to but since they don't go that high I will give my highest rating of five!

I just recently watched this movie and I totaly loved it. I'm a big fan of reese witherspoon so I knew that I'd enjoy it but I loved her brother sammy and how he fell in love with this abused girl. It showed that Handicapped people are just as smart as anybody else. Everybody should see this film and learn the meaning of True Love and Friendship.

There were a couple of aspects of this movie that were a little too neat and packaged, like how Reese'es character's dad changes overnight and such. But I have to say that this movie was riveting to me. I have never before seen Patricia Arquette and I was just astounded. Her performance is absolutely superb. To me, a book or movie is great, when I literally feel like I have become a person in the story, and feel everything that person feels. That is why this movie is so great. Patricia's character is that person in this movie, at least to me. I am an absolute fan of Reese Witherspoon, so I couldn't be too objective as I love everything about her and she is great in this movie as always. Her character really shows the love of a true friend to the abused girl. I cannot imagine anyone watching this movie and not enjoying it. It is a truly heartwarming story. I will watch it again and again. If you like it, check out "The Man in the Moon."

"Wildflower" is a haunting, yet heartening, tale of a terribly abused epileptic deaf teenaged girl in the 1930s American South. She is befriended by a brother and sister and shown the beauty of love. Patricia Arquette gives a thoroughly researched, moving performance as the deaf girl, and Reese Witherspoon presents a charming down-to-earth young rescuer. Billy McNamara gives a solid, sexy performance as the brother. Other characters are well-drawn and three-dimensional. This film stays with you.

This is the first time I've seen this movie and it's absolutely endearing. It's like getting a glimpse into the early 1900's and the way people lived in that era. The movie features a fine cast from Beau Bridges to Reese Witherspoon, all fantastic actors in the depiction of small community, family helping those less fortunate, romance between a young boy seeking college and his natural attraction to a deaf girl. A brother and sister help the illiterate deaf girl, played by Arquette, to learn to live among everyday people who accept her with a little help from a loving and generous family. The film teaches a lot of things but most importantly, how a family grows and develops a more loving, close-knit fabric of genuine family that had been lost when the daughter and son's mother died and the father had given up on life. The deaf Allie is wild, at first, until the brother/sister teach her to read and write. I watched her grow and grew a little bit more, myself. The brother gradually falls in love with a "new and improved" deaf Allie who will charm at times and break your heart at others. I'm very glad I found this movie on Amazon. I could not look away until it was all over. I wished to see more. I would give it more stars if available. If you do not enjoy this movie, then watch it again and it will become more clear, if you like to know some of the "older ways."

Patricia Arquette won the Best Supporting Oscar this year for Boyhood & is currently starring the CBS series "Cyber CSI." That triggered me to want to see some of her earlier work, which led to "Wildflower." Arquette is nothing short of amazing in this early role of hers. As Alice Guthrie, she convincingly portrays a deaf child compounded by social deprivations of backwoods misunderstanding. Her epileptic grand mal seizure was frightening. The arc in her character is breathtaking. Reese Witherspoon also is excellent as Ellie Perkins, a young girl whose mother is deceased, raised by her illiterate father played by Beau Bridges. William McNamera plays Ellie's brother Sammy who develops a crush on Alice and longs to go to college. The dynamic between the three teen leads is excellent, directed with a steady hand by Diane Keaton. Norman Max Maxwell who has not done a lot of work this century plays Ormand Guthrie, the often drunk and violent step-father of Alice. He is indeed scary in the role. The film is a made-for-television film and has a PG13 feel to it. It has many excellent themes like the value of friendship, choosing your friends on their personal qualities rather than social status and family loyalty. Well worth seeking this gem out. Enjoy!
