Music Within (2007) /

User Rating: 8.1/10

Ron Livingston oh-so accurately portrays Richard Pimentel's passion and anger as he struggles
with his own life and as he learns how to channel that passion to begin making a difference, not
only for himself, but for all people. Mr. Livingston also manages to reflect Richard's manner;
his facial expressions, his speech, and especially his "stage presence."

Michael Sheen, who portrays Art Honeyman, draws the audience in and makes us all believe that
he has CP. His ability to do this, to really become Art, should certainly earn him an Oscar.

I would highly recommend that everyone see this very entertaining and thought-provoking movie.

1. Is it CC? lol, doubt it. Unless they show it at the local Regal Cinema that
has open captioning on some screens I guess I will have to wait until it come out on DVD.

I can't for the life of me remember the name of this one movie I saw. It was about a DJ, he was famous (in the movie, I don't think it was based on a true story), a druggie, rich, etc. He ends up going deaf. It reminded me of the process I went through. His friends and family basically leave him, not wanting to trouble themselves with trying to communicate (though this wasn't too much of a problem, many in my family are deaf/hoh). He gets depressed and become a hermit (which I did). He finally ventures out, meets a deaf sign language/Lip reading instructor (it was set in Spain, so it wasn't ASL). He finds his world isn't over, music can still be a part of his life. He is getting a famous, so his friends come out of the wood work, still acting like assholes though. Finally he just disappears with his deaf teacher and he becomes a wonderful person, one he wouldn't have been without becoming deaf. It's kind of a ridiculous movie, tries to be funny. In the beginning of it, I was sooo offended, but by the end I understood and was crying, even though I don't think it was made to make one cry.

That's how I feel about my deafness. I miss a lot of things, but love the person I am now. It's sad that it took becoming deaf to open my eyes, but that's just the truth. I don't think I would like the person I would have been had I not gone deaf.
