Randa Haines (born February 20, 1945 in Los Angeles, California) is a film and television director and producer. She is perhaps most famous for directing the critically acclaimed feature film Children of a Lesser God (1986), which starred William Hurt and Marlee Matlin, for which Matlin won the 1987 Academy Award as best actress. Haines also won the Silver Bear at the 37th Berlin International Film Festival. In 1989, she was a member of the jury at the 39th Berlin International Film Festival.
Haines received a Directors Guild of America Award nomination for that film and was nominated both for the DGA Award and an Emmy Award in 1984 for the television movie Something About Amelia. —Wikipedia
Analizando la ficha tecnica, el reparto hace que la cinta parezca muy prometedora, sin embargo, ya entrados en materia, es facil percibir durante la primera hora que, en comparación,cualquier telenovela de TV Azteca resulta un modelo de cinismo. Mamona,lacrimogena y aburrida,uno no puede dejar de agradecer el que,al menos, uno de los personajes (el de Marlee Matlin) evite decir una sola pendejada durante la pelicula.
