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...

THe Move is awesome!
11 July 2012 | by BCPullen20See all my reviews

This movie i watched at Mississippi school for the deaf event last year. I met Hilari Scarl, C Jones. they are great people to meet and talked with. about this movie and it shows true story that inspired me and deaf community. I will refer this movie to hearing community who wants to learn deaf community. Deaf actually can do anything to make themselves successful. don't let our deafness block our ability. we can do anything!

there some hearing people who date deaf people mostly commonly says for introducing hearing to the deaf culture is instantly interesting to them because it different to them and mostly colorful language and it been 200 years to have American Sign Language.

Cheers,

Cody Pullen
