A Patch of Blue

A Patch of Blue ★★★★½

Listen, any film made in the 60s dealing with race relations is going to have its problems but I haven't felt this enchanted by a film in a while hence the five star rating despite its issues. Sidney Poitier is so unbelievably charming and able to make your heart flutter in anything but especially in this and Elizabeth Hartman's performance as a blind woman is truly incredible. Their love story, although faulted, is beautiful and brought me so much joy.
