Has anyone seen this movie?? :)


I've noticed that there are no posts for this movie..so that makes me wonder..has anyone seen it?? I have..and love it :) I have a sister who is deaf and I am hard-of-hearing, so I am of course interested in it. I think it's a really good movie anyway!

I have... great movie. Marlee is one of my favorite actresses. I saw this movie first when I was acting as an interpreter, but even when I stopped doing that it has held a place in my memory.

I just wish it were available on DVD.

I'm in high school and I just saw it in my American Sign Language class. I thought it was interesting, and it was surprising how well Marlee Matlin acts despite her deafness.

I watched the movie today for the first time. I never really heard of this deaf actress. Wow this was so good. I cried through half of it. I know alot of deaf people and I am sure they would love this movie. I wish there was a sequel to the movie. I figured her & Dans best friend would get together, and have a romantic relationship. I am glad she and her mother made amends.

Kinda had a "Lifetime movie" quality to it. Marlee Matlin was good but it seemed like everybody else was overacting. The bit about the unicorn at the end was definitely cornball though.

I almost didn't see it. I turned on the tv, and was about to change when I saw someone signing. Out of curiosity, I stuck it out

The movie is not so good. I mean, really, it's not a *great* movie by any stretch. But it was entertaining, and I would watch it again.

What interests me is the little girl. It appears she is hearing, but her signing was really good! I watch her to see how a child would sign, esp a hearing child.

The movie should be redone. It was '89. It's been long enough to try it again with better quality.

I have seen this movie and in the part where Marlee Matlin chased Lee Remick down the stairs, smacking her silly and yelling "Get out!" repeatedly, I died laughing.

I love every bit of the movie.
