Set in rural England and inspired by real life events. The Silent Child centres around a profoundly deaf four year old girl named Libby who is born into a middle class family and lives in a world of silence until a caring social worker teaches her the gift of communication.
I watched this in a sign language class at my college. I've always wanted to communicate well with deaf people and this film shows why that is so important.
The feelings of loneliness expressed by the young actress are true to life. Many deaf ones cannot communicate with the general public, not because they don't want to, but because no one understands them. This film captures that and provides a powerful message why we need to try harder to include the deaf community by trying to communicate with them.
The Silent Child is an amazing and emotional film that needs to be seen. It's realism is outstanding and it's message compelling. Thoroughly deserved the Oscar.
