Movie Info

Get on board with Emmy award-winning filmmaker Harvey Hubbell V and his crew as they explore the unique nature of how each of us learn. Join Hubbell, dyslexic superstars Billy Bob Thornton and Joe Pantoliano, world-renowned brain scientists and researchers, students and advocates as they join a movement to revolutionize education. Find out what it's like to have your brain scanned inside an fMRI and visit with a group of dyslexic researchers in the jungles of Costa Rica, all the while following Hubbell through his days of growing up dyslexic before many had even heard of the word. Through the non-linear brain of Hubbell, his lens captures the otherwise complex issues of learning differences in a manner that allows the audience to recognize the differences and honor the gifts in all of us. This is social awareness with a heart. (c) Official Sitemore

New York Times
Top Critic

Dislecksia: The Movie is an exuberantly didactic documentary, and director Harvey Hubbell has done his homework.

Village Voice
Top Critic

Dealing with an important subject, this doc has moments of genuine enlightenment but is nearly undone by aggressively sophomoric handling which is in itself a strangely unintended insult to its audience's intelligence.

Film Journal International

It's packaged in an easygoing 83 minutes that sometimes gets too cutesy for its own good but never wears out its welcome.
