Anyone Seen "A Patch of Blue" With Sidney Poitier?

I just watched this last night and liked it. I'm looking to see if others have seen it and how you enjoyed it--if you did enjoy it.

It's been years but I really enjoyed it. One of my favorite Sidney Poitier movies.

Very solid movie that was considered bold in its time, and one I always enjoy revisiting - especially for Shelly Winters' Oscar-winning performance.

Yeah about Winters...I thought she was just okay in this film. What was so oscar worthy? She's on screen for 30 minutes. I thought the first half was great with her on, but I expected her treatment of Selina to get a lot worse once she found out she was with Gordon. It wasn't really that big of a deal.

I'm not saying Winters was bad. But I'm saying the blind girl and Poitier easily were the best in this film. I guess I just didn't see anything phenomenal out of Winters.
