  1. This film drove me crazy with Hurt verbalizing and interpreting everything Matlin was signing. I’m not sure of what else could have been done but, in the end, it wound up really annoying me…surely not its original intent.

  2. Great review. Usually I shun ’80s films but this one sounds interesting.

    Thanks for sharing your personal story of working with a deaf person. It is a subject that I’ve found fascinating since learning about Helen Keller when I was younger. Have you seen the film “Johnny Belinda”? I know that was an Oscar nominee, and garnered Jane Wyman her sole Oscar. I’m not sure how accurate it is in its portrayal, but I thought it was a good film regardless.

    Oh, and by the way, I’m a Catholic too!
