Worth it for teenagers
18 April 2004 | by (Moscow, Idaho) – See all my reviews

This Afterschool Special hit the target. Many teenagers are ashamed of their parents, for any number of reasons. Many teenagers think their parents are too strict. And many parents are uncertain how to raise a teenager. In this movie, the parents happen to be deaf -- and that adds another dimension to these issues of teenage and parental angst. The acting is believable. The kids are attractive -- and my teenage girls were able to identify with them. Rosanna Arquette is a gifted actress and this film displays her budding promise. Her facility in using sign language to communicate with her parents -- and even to scream at them -- was not only impressive -- it also added to the believability of their relationship, the frustration of parent-child communication in general, and her underlying love for her parents.
