Children of a Lesser God

Tonight we watched "Children of a Lesser God." It won an Academy Award in 1986, but we had never seen it. It was excellent, and I highly recommend it. It is touching and romantic, a "feel-good" evening's entertainment.
The synopsis online: "Children of a Lesser God" is a love story about a speech teacher who falls for a beautiful yet distant deaf girl in a small New England school for the deaf, and the obstacles that they face due to their differences.
Marlee Matlin won an Academy Award for "Best Actress in a Leading Role" for the movie in 1986.
