Storyline

This inspirational and heartfelt documentary follows four well-known entertainers in the deaf community: a comic, a drummer, an actor and a singer as they attempt to cross over and reach mainstream audiences. These uniquely talented deaf entertainers of various disciplines overcome great challenges on their way to personal triumphs and professional success. Bob, a drummer in the world's only deaf rock band, Beethoven's Nightmare, produces the largest show in the band's 30 year history; CJ, a hugely famous and internationally renowned comic in the Deaf world, but virtually unknown to hearing audiences, fights to cross over to the mainstream by producing the first international sign language theatre festival in Los Angeles; Robert, a brilliant actor who teaches at Juilliard, struggles to survive when he becomes homeless, his health compromised by HIV; and TL, a hard of hearing singer finds herself caught between the hearing and deaf communities when she attracts her first major producer...

I really enjoyed this movie !!!
29 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am dating a person who lost his hearing when he was seven years old. He is now in his 60's. I have gained so much more respect for those in our society who are hearing impaired since i met him.

He took me to this movie on my birthday, March 18, for the World Premiere at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood. I must say i was skeptical at first as i wasn't sure what to expect.

The movie was marvelous, funny, sad, and really inspirational. I am looking forward to seeing it again and again.

I thank my boyfriend, Robert, for introducing me to the deaf culture and this wonderful movie! I highly recommend this movie! Two thumbs up !!! Michelle
