Mandy | 1951
Six-year-old Mandy Garland was born deaf and has been mute all her life. Postwar English society sees her as disabled, but her mother, Christine, believes she can learn to talk if enrolled in a school for the deaf. To do so, she has to battle her husband, his meddling mother and his stern father, and eventually she has to leave with Mandy. Christine's sacrifice is doubled when she's accused of adultery.
