What do Deaf people think of this film?
I know the Deaf community were mad that Marlee Matlin used her voice during her oscar speech, but I was also wondering the Deaf perspective on this film. I am hearing and studying sign language. I was in a Deaf Culture class last year and asked my teacher, who is Deaf what he thought of it. He totally attacked the film, but had some good points. He said the weather symbolized the Deaf world. He also said that during the pool scene the fact that she was naked and he had his clothes on symbolized that man have power over woman. I thought the fight scene symbolized the relationships between a Deaf and hearing couple. I dk what do you guys think.
