THE SECRET LIFE OF WORDS

Isabel Coixet’s sweet, funny, sad, odd little romantic drama is about a Yugoslavian factory worker (Sarah Polley) who volunteers to nurse a temporarily blind oil rig worker (Tim Robbins) back to health after a blindness-causing accident. The two leads are terrific, giving performances which pulse with tragedy and frailty, and Coixet (“Things I Never Told You,” “My Life Without Me”) crafts a wonderful improbable connection between them.
