A Patch Of Blue
Love is color blind.
A blind, uneducated white girl is befriended by a black man, who becomes determined to help her escape her impoverished and abusive home life.
Gah. Sidney Poitier is just. GOLDEN.
This movie was lovely --- gradually blooming into something truly darling to watch.
*Also, I appreciate that some people understand that hugs are more intimate than kisses ---
Thank you, TCM.
An explosive and entertaining film that may not be as hard-hitting as it thinks it is. All the same, the acting is superb.
Sidney Poitier's on-screen charm is on full blast, and Hartman and Winters give great performances.
