But, I'm watching Sweet Nothing in My Ear tonight.
It stars Marlee Matlin and Jeff Daniels. It is a story about a couple struggling to decide whether to provide a cochlear implant for their 8 year old child who was deafened post-lingually. One parent is Deaf - one is not.
Some of the scenes are in a courtroom setting. A very easy way for the writers to show the very conflicting sides of this argument.
I wouldn't call the program a documentary by any stretch... and anyone who watches should not view it as such. But from what I have seen so far, it seems to be giving a fairly accurate depiction of the CI Conflict and why it is such a volatile subject.
I respect the Deaf Culture and at some level can understand why they feel as they do about CIs. I hope this movie helps others see that as well. As a hearing person, I always found it so difficult to understand why anyone would not want their child to hear. But after having Toes, I took the time to learn more. And I am glad I did.
Watch the movie.
