Dr. Matthew Clark is the head of a state institution for mentally retarded children. Jean Hansen, a former music teacher anxious to give her life some meaning, joins the staff of the hospital. Jean, who tries to shelter the children with her love, suspiciously regards Clark's stern training methods. She becomes emotionally involved with 12-year-old Reuben Widdicombe, who has been abandoned by his divorced parents.

Movie Parental Guide

nudity None. A kiss between a married couple.
violence Some flailing and pushing from autistic child -- with mild restraint by hugging. Mentioning of breaking his toys and others toys.
profanity one damn, one hell The term "retarded" is used clinically. Not always considered acceptable now, but it is period correct, and used without derision.
alcohol Casual cigarette smoking by adults
frightening Not rated, but would probably be: PG-Thematic Elements and Brief Mild Language Many wonderful and realistic interactions with developmentally disabled children. Movie's theme would not be understood by younger children, without explanation by parents.
