"I think people are ready for a story about a blind woman who's raising a family or having a career or both. What I wonder is if they're ready for a blind woman who's in her thirties living with a man who's in his sixties, in a relationship that deals with alcohol and infidelity. In other words, I don't know if America is ready for a blind girl who isn't a goody two-shoes." Blunt and ballsy, Diane Starin, the thirty-four-year-old blind woman who is the star of this David Sutherland documentary, "Out of Sight," is no goody-two shoes. But she is a strong, independent and complex woman who breaks horses, hearts and stereotypes. Sutherland's 85-minute portrait of Diane is an unflinching and unconventional film, one that refuses to condecend to its subject or its audience. With "Out of Sight," Sutherland has painted a portrait that is both individual and universal. He has illuminated the complicated world of a most unusual woman, a world at once unique and yet familiar to any woman or man who has ever loved, lost, cheated or rolled the dice of life.
