Her parents, who rely on her as their ears and mouth in the outside world, take the news badly.

Since the moment I watched the trailer I told myself: "I have to see this movie." And it was worth it. Sometimes you don't need cars exploiting, a super mega plot twist, fantasy creatures or a whole new fictional world, sometimes you just need a heartwarming movie like this one. This is a nice film to see with your family, partner or friend. It has romance, comedy and a great ending. The movie gives you a different perspective of a unique family that like every other family has to deal with their own problems and issues. I give it an 8 because I felt they rushed to get to the conclusion but besides that the rest is great. The music and the way Eric portrayed it in the movie was amazing. Go watch it in theaters and let Louane Emera's voice take your breath.
