A Patch of Blue

A Patch of Blue ★★★½

My apprehension about films that deal with race or disabilities is completely justified considering Hollywood’s history (and even current status), so A Patch of Blue—a film that explores both race and blindness— made me quite nervous to start. To my surprise, this film actually shows a great deal of sensitivity to both matters, and presents the love story so sincerely and convincingly that I couldn’t help but be utterly charmed. This doesn't completely erase the film's problems, but I still really admire its effort (and Sidney Poitier’s smile).

3.6/5
