Amy is a 1981 live-action Disney film released by Buena Vista Distribution Company, written by Noreen Stone and directed by Vincent McEveety, and starring Jenny Agutter.


Amy Medford (Jenny Agutter) is a dutiful housewife of the early 1900s. But when her husband Elliot (Chris Robinson) objects to a wife with a career, Amy leaves her husband and comfortable lifestyle. She goes on to devote her life to teaching sight-and-hearing-impaired students at a tradition-bound special school. Amy's students take on a team of "normal" kids at a football game.
