He goes with his girlfriend Amy (Mira Sorvino) to see an eye specialist who tells Virgil that medicine has made great strides in the last 25 years and he may be able to give Virgil sight.    Virgil agrees to give the proposed procedure a try.

Pros: Good idea, decent acting     Cons: Little unbelievable     This movie starring Val Kilmer, Mira Sorvino, Kelly McGillis, Nathan Lane and Steven Weber is based on a true story. Kilmer plays the part of Virgil Adamson, a blind masseuse that meets up with Sorvino (Amy) a New York architect. Amy is over worked and under stress, meeting hectic deadlines, working with her ex-husband, Steven Weber. She needs a little relief, a little love, a little break.   …
