Stunningly awful on almost every level.

Somber, ponderous, and pretentious, this is a clinical study of a wild woman (Jodie Foster) raised in the backwoods, far from the interference and contamination (according to the film) of Civilization. It's better to see Truffaut's Wild Child.

Nell will startle you with its poignant message that we can all be angels bringing grace and trust and light into each other's lives.

Nell's bell knells when her stroke-victim mother drops dead at the beginning of the film.
