William Gibson's play is based on the relationship between Helen Keller, born deaf and blind, and her Irish governess, Annie Sullivan. While still retaining traces of theatricality in the dialogue the overriding impression of the scenes between Helen and Annie, often filmed in long takes, is that of raw spontaneity. This unsentimental life-affirming film is grounded in a sense of the complexities and confusion of human existence. Helen is the ultimate outsider, an outcast from life itself. Annie, a combination mother and father to Helen, is able to give her life through the (re)birth of human intelligence. Annie achieves this because of her obsessive drive, a measure of both her greatness and unfittedness for normal life. The intense physicality of the drama comes close to reconciling conscious control and instinctive drive
