The amazing story of Helen Keller and Anne Sullivan shows the importance of hope and perseverance.
34. The Miracle Worker
One of the most incredible people ever to have lived was Helen Keller. Not only did she overcome being blind and deaf, she went on to change the world with her deep wisdom and perseverance through struggles. Both versions of the movie The Miracle Worker only show her childhood. However, the story reminds viewers that what seems impossible can be done and great things can come out of difficult circumstances.
Synopsis: The Kellers are nearly ready to give up on their little girl. Helen was once a normal child but now is deaf, mute, and blind who demands her way all of the time. Unsure of what to do, the Kellers cater to their child’s whims and fear for the worst. When a teacher, Anne Sullivan, comes to try to help Helen communicate, the training seems pointless at first. Yet, the determined woman refuses to give up as she continues to try to teach her pupil how to experience the world and interact with others.
