Children of a Lesser God Reviews

March 16, 2011
Children of a Lesser God, though given a handsome openness in Director Haines' production, cannot transcend the banalities of the play. But Matlin does. She is, one might say, a miracle worker.

Hurt seems to be bucking for at least two Oscar nominations here: one for his performance, the other for best echo effects by an interpreter of signed speech.

A touching and universal love story.

A genuinely touching love story and a clever gloss on the barriers and extensions of language.

There's scarcely a single moment in it that seems to be spontaneous.

The polemic drama of deaf rights translates into a heart-pounding love story -- the most passionately performed since Officer and a Gentleman.
