the sublime

anne bancroft can do no wrong in my eyes. most famous for her portrayal of 'mrs. robinson' in 'the graduate', the woman shines in everything. as the wife in a slowly disintegrating marriage in 'the pumpkin eater' the inner strength she draws on to survive her emotional collapse is mind expanding to witness.
she won an oscar for her role as 'anne sullivan' in 'the miracle worker.' her co-star, the amazing patty duke, took home an oscar as well. the filmed story of helen keller and her teacher navigates the deep waters of the impossible to the sublimely possible.
