Girl develops language skills

Looking for a movie (probably mid 90s’) about a girl who was found in an old house when she was 14-16 years old, living in isolation (in a cage perhaps)? She was hid by her abusive father and couldn’t talk, because when she was little no one ever spoke to her and she didn’t develop language skills. The girl had big blue eyes and was very quiet. Her doctor discovers that her mother did talk to her sometimes, and therefore she is able to learn new words. At the end of the film she learns to speak and testifies against her father in court. (NOT “Nell”. NOT “Mockingbirds don’t sing”)
