Overview

Originally telecast November 12, 2000, on ABC, The Miracle Worker was the third film version of the classic biographical play by William Gibson. Following in the footsteps of Patty Duke and Melissa Gilbert as the young Helen Keller is Hallie Kate Eisenberg, who skyrocketed to TV fame in 2000 as star of a series of well-circulated cola commercials. Alison Elliot co-stars as Annie Sullivan, the dedicated, no-nonsense teacher who ultimately draws the blind, deaf, and mute Helen out of her lonely shell (literally kicking and screaming at times) and into the "normal" world. Filmed in Mississauga, Ontario, The Miracle Worker was shown as a two-hour episode of ABC's The Wonderful World of Disney anthology.

I have to say that this movie was very dissappointing. Helen or Hallie Kate(The Pespi Girl) did a horrible job a potraying the role of Helen Keller. She seemed emotionless and deffinently not up to par with Patty Duke, the orignal Helen Keller. In my language arts class we read the play and watched the orignal and the newest versions of "The Miracle Worker". So, if you would like to see a good movie watch the orignal.

The miracle is the casting director, who put Hallie K. Eisenberg in the role. She made the movie worth watching. In fact, I was so convinced of her deafness that I didn't know, until months later, that little Hallie is not deaf at all. I enjoyed this version much more than the Patty Duke one.
