Summary One of the most critically-acclaimed films of the 80s, this uplifting love story garnered four **Oscar** nominations and a Best Actress **Oscar** for Marlee Matlin. Based on the hit Broadway play, CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD tells the story of John Leeds (William Hurt), an idealistic special education teacher, and a headstrong deaf girl named Sarah (Marlee Matlin). At first, Leeds sees Sarah as a teaching challenge. But soon their teacher/student relationship blossoms into a love so passionate it shatters the barrier of silence that keeps them apart. Matlin's performance also earned her a **Golden Globe** for best Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama. CHILDREN OF A LESSER GOD won the Silver Berlin Bear at the 1987 **Berlin International Film Festival**. *"This is romance the way Hollywood used to make it, with both conflict and tenderness, at times capturing the texture of the day-to-day, at times finding the lyrical moments when two lovers find that time stops."* - Paul Attanasio, ***The Washington Post***
