  1. Very interesting, I think closed caption should be shown some automatically when Marlee does not sign in the first movie. Marlee says,”Why?” after Hurt tells him he wants to teach her speech”. Off screen, some deaf people said she took speech class. Wonder what hearing or Deaf audiences think of that? Most Deaf people will never be able to talk like hearing people do, cuz it takes years and years for teachers to correct their speech. Waste Yes…Deaf children need academics to feed their brains than speech. I teach ASL in the sign language class at university near my hometown…most students major in audiology because they wants to teach deaf children speech…Interesting? Nothing new?? Speech is their main concern for deaf children than academics. I assume AGB has a big influence all over the world.
