Lukas Haas portrays David, a withdrawn but apparent near genius, who fears being touched. Brittney Murphy plays Lisa, a young woman seemingly suffering from split personalities who speaks only in rhymes and withdraws from anyone who does not speak to her likewise.

Meeting in the psychiatric ward, the twos eyes lock and an obvious attraction is indicated. First each must learn to approach each other in their own sphere.

Enter Sidney Poitier as a caring psychologist who helps David to come to terms with his emotional failure to deal with his fathers death at an early age. Debi Mazar also appears as Lisas case worker.

Comments about David And Lisa:

A film new to me and one I thoroughly enjoyed. It covers a not often dealt with area, that of young people with special needs, offering insight, understanding and humour. Well worth viewing.
