James is a new speech teacher at a school for the deaf. He falls for Sarah, a pupil who decided to stay on at the school rather than venture into the big bad world. She shuns him at first, refusing to read his lips and only using signs. Will her feelings change over time?Written by

Marlee Matlin, to date, the only deaf person to win an Academy Award in any category for her role in this film. At 21 years old, she also became the youngest actress to win the Academy Award for Best Actress and is one of only four others to win for their debut performance. Needless to say, she broke much ground when she won the award. See more »

I enjoyed this movie because I understood, at least in part, the need for isolation as a defence against the world. I also believe that one can find someone to share the silence and it is that that makes being vulnerable worth it. Life can have a harmony of two together if you are willing to give it your all.
