Children of a Lesser God is an intense love story based on a deaf girls fear of being emotionally hurt. The girl, Marlee Matlin, earned a Best Actress Oscar for her performance as the ¿mysterious, beautiful, angry¿ custodian at the high school from which she graduated. A new teacher at the school, William Hurt, sets out to teach her to speak, and quickly learns that she is more than resistant to the idea. The two fall in love but cannot find the emotional ¿place between hearing and silence¿ that they can share. This movie gives the viewer a glimpse of the plight that deaf people face in trying to interface with a hearing world. I love this movie. The DVD is permanent to my collection, and I recommend it for yours.

OK, I'm biased because I've spent most my life within Deaf culture, but I'm still a hearing person. I use this for a break in an American Sign Language class I teach at the university level. While it is a tear-jerker, it touches on many themes common in lives of the Deaf. Despite it's age, the themes and issues still ring true today. Marlee Matlin's performance is wonderful, if not a bit overdone.
