A Song from the Heart
This poignant love story stars Amy Grant as a beautiful, blind concert cellist who falls for a famous, self-centered pianist but doesn’t realize that true love is right before her eyes.
This is a fantastic story about a teacher who suffers from blindness but sees much more than people realize. Maryann Lowery (Amy Grant) was a young girl who was riding with her parents and she survived a car accident that not only left her blind, but resulted in both her parents’ deaths. She has continued in her love for music and one of her students is a young girl who hopes Mary Anne will marry her father, Oliver Comstock, played by Keith Carradine. Maryann is a cellist who is content to teach although she has the talent to perform and tour if she so wished.
When a famous artist named Gregory Pavan (D.W. Moffett) comes to speak to her class, she quickly puts him in his place, refusing to let his arrogance interfere with her class. He is smitten by her and they begin to date. Adding to Maryann’s happiness is the news from her doctor that surgery could restore her sight. Although reluctant at first because of a fear of failure, Gregory encourages Maryann to take the risk. Soon Gregory is busy as his career begins to reach new heights and Oliver, the man who has always been there for Mary Anne, hopes to win her love. The plot has some twists here and there, and is a well written story and nicely acted too.
