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.

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.
