Wow. Me and my entire family watched this movie and were deeply touched. I really loved the closed captioning, I didn't have to explain nothing to my little Sue. I have never seen any film that had captions that were so accurate and thorough. My little grand daughter is hard of hearing, and after we watched this film, she gave me a big hug and said "Pa-Pa I can do anything!" Well that about melted this old mans heart to the core. I ask God that everyone watches this movie and shares. We are so blessed, never take anything for granted.
This is an amazing documentary! Incredibly well done! An honest portrayal of the lives of deaf individuals and the controversy of the deaf community regarding cochlear implants. Rachel Coleman provides compelling information about the education of deaf children and the "accepted lower expectations" for them as learners. I would recommend this documentary to everyone who wants to have a better understanding of the challenges and victories deaf families face! Louder than words is a perfect title for a perfect documentary..
Love this documentary. I bought this on dvd when it was first released and have watched it several times. My intention for the purchase was to watch the Coleman story as my son and I are huge fans of their program but I ended up being drawn in to both family’s stories. Amazing. I even had my sister in law watch it and she was glued. Neither of us have ties to the deaf community but we both loved it. Two stories very well told and very heart wrenching.
This by far was the best documentary I have watched that gave me confirmation that we made the right decision to implant our daughter. Rachel’s story, the creator of Signing Times, and the story of two deaf parents was compelling. Love! I have my family watch this to give them perspective on the controversy surrounding the Deaf community and cochlear implants.
I really enjoyed this movie. It made me laugh...it made me cry...it made me think...it made me feel so thankful for technology and the ability I have to give my kids the choice to hear. A well-thought-out and executed documentary!
