It's always very difficult to make movies about such issue, retardation folks. I have already seen NO OTHER LOVE, another TV movie about the same problem, and I felt exactly the same. It's not a bad feature, of course, and it's very well done, but people could see it in a different way, as a sort of "circus" freak show...The acting is superb, nothing to argue about this. No many big screen movies were made about this topic, and I understand why, that would not be big success at the box office, unless it is pulled by great actors and directors: see for instance RAIN MAN - although it is was about an autistic man and not retarded.
The typical home film, made for families. I recommend it. Moving at the most.
