About the Movie
Stacy Keach ("American History X," "Escape from L.A.") and Sondra Locke ("The Outlaw Josey Wales," "Sudden Impact") made their film debuts in Carson McCuller's poignant story of a deaf mute (Academy Award-winner Alan Arkin - "Little Miss Sunshine," "Slums of Beverly Hills") who brings warmth into the lives of lonely people in a small Southern town, particularly to a sensitive 14-year-old girl who becomes his staunch friend after an initial period of hostility. Locke and Arkin earned Oscar nominations for their performances. Directed by Robert Ellis Miller ("Hawks," "Any Wednesday").
i first saw the movie back in high school , and loved it ! One of Alan Arkins best performances ..
Great Insightful Movie
This movie is a great depiction of human nature and relationships between people who are very different from one another. Although it deviates from the novel of the same title, the sentiment is still quite strong. Alan Arkin does a superb job as a deaf man who gives of himself as he struggles with loneliness. This is one of my favorite films of all time.
