The Miracle Worker

Can nothing be done to disinter this human soul?
The whole neighborhood would rush to save this woman
if she were buried alive by the caving in of a pit
and labor with zeal until she were dug out.
Now, if there were one who had as much patience as zeal,
you might awaken her.

I just finished watching The Miracle Worker, for the first time.

I'm not quite sure what to say about it, but it had such an impact on me that I feel I've got to say something. The subject matter is very important. The dialogue is fantastic at times. The film is intelligent and exquisitely heart-wrenching. I've never cried so much watching a movie. If you haven't seen this movie, you should.
