This story stayed in my mind. I even recall that the stars William Hurt and Marlee Matlin became an item off screen as well as on. I can remember her winning the Oscar for Best Actress and William presenting it to her and her thanking him for his love! God I'm sad!!! (they split up not long after the Oscars though!).
Other reviewers have covered the plot. All I will say is that this film is funny, sad, romantic and touching and I absolutely loved it.
