    The Pespi girl?

    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.

    A fantastic lil actress

    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.
