Marie’s Story (Marie Heurtin) by Jean-Pierre Améris (2014, 90 min.). At the turn of the 19th century, a humble artisan and his wife have a daughter Marie, who is born Deaf and blind and unable to communicate with the world around her. Desperate to find a connection to their daughter and avoid sending her to an asylum, the Heurtins send Marie to the Larnay Institute, where an order of Catholic nuns manages a school for Deaf girls. Sister Marguerite (Isabelle Carré) sees unique potential in Marie and vows to bring her out of the darkness. Based on true events, Marie’s Story recounts the courageous journey of a young nun and the lives she would change forever, confronting failures and discouragement with joyous faith and love. “An assured, emotionally satisfying French offering. Carré…plays her determined character with moving obstinacy and grace,” Variety. In French with English subtitles.
