Address Comments To:
The movie is well directed by Michael Apted who manages to walk a fine line in unfolding a poignant story without becoming overly melodramatic. The cinematography is superb. Foster shines particularly in scenes in which Nell seeks to express herself in her incommunicable language. However, nude scenes (though naturalistic and not sexual) and improbable plot development detract from an otherwise well-made film.
