Editorial Reviews

One of the most critically-acclaimed films of the 80s Children of a Lesser God garnered four Academy Award nominations and a Best Actress Oscar for Marlee Matlin. Based on the hit Broadway play it's the uplifting love story of John Leeds (William Hurt) an idealistic special education teacher and a headstrong deaf girl named Sarah (Marlee Matlin). At first Leeds sees Sarah as a teaching challenge. But soon their teacher/student relationship blossoms into a love so passionate it shatters the barrier of silence that keeps them apart.System Requirements:Running Time: 118 minutesFormat: DVD MOVIE Genre: DRAMA/LOVE & ROMANCE Rating: R UPC: 097361378749 Manufacturer No: 137874
