Amy is a 1981 American family drama film produced by Walt Disney Productions, distributed by Buena Vista Distribution, written by Noreen Stone and directed by Vincent McEveety, and starring Jenny Agutter.
Amy Medford (Jenny Agutter) is a dutiful housewife of the early 20th century. But when her husband Elliot (Chris Robinson) objects to a wife with a career, Amy leaves her husband and comfortable lifestyle. She goes on to devote her life to teaching sight-and-hearing-impaired students at a tradition-bound special school. Amy teaches the impaired students how to speak, as most of the students have never heard their own name. Amy's students take on a team of "normal" kids at a football game.
