Hear and Now

A Movie ReelHear and Now: 8 out of 10.

Irene Taylor Brodsky's parents were born deaf. They lived full lives, raised three children and, at the age of 65, decided to receive a complex surgical implant, which allows them to experience sound for the first time.

This documentary from HBO is about a great deal more than hearing sounds. It's about communication, and as we learn, hearing and communication are two mutually exclusive abilities.

This film is excellent and I highly recommend it.
