      Audience Member A fabulous movie, a true classic movie. The acting, the script are all outstanding. It won an Emmy too. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member LOVE LOVED this movie. I felt it was so good and so real. I watched it in my American Sign Language II class, and as someone who is going into interpreting for the Deaf I really learned a lot about the history of the Deaf and the pain that happened to many families because of the ignorance of the hearing. I really feel for the children in this movie, because although they are the only way to the hearing world for the parents, it isn't right for a child to be put into those situations, now I hope in todays world that it never happens again. For both the parents and the children. And I cannot wait to begin to interpreting for the Deaf Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member this is one of the best movies I have ever seen! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Good movie! My aunt actually plays the protagonist as a 10 year old. After seeing this one again I was amazed to see that she was in a scene with the legendary Sid Caesar!!! Wow. Anyway, a really good movie and it has a personal connection to me because my mother is a CODA. Anyway, it's a little old but the acting is top notch.
