Viewing Notes

This movie deeply affected me. Seeing your disability, albeit more moderate in my case, depicted accurately in a film was unexpected and emotional. The sound design is amazing, and a very accurate depiction of hearing loss based on my own experience. I was genuinely upset to see/hear it because it was so shocking to be confronted with it.
