Movie Info

Two branches of the Artinian family, each headed by a brother, are at the center of a passionate and elucidating debate. On one side, Chris and Mari are the hearing parents of a deaf newborn and decide to implant their baby, much to the dismay of their deaf in-laws. On the other hand, Chris's brother Peter, whose entire family is deaf, is dealing with his young daughter's request for an implant, a request decidedly at odds with his role as a leader of the anti-implant movement.

Audience Reviews for Sound and Fury

There is so much to be said about this documentary, but mostly I'm impressed by how frustrated, emotionally charged, exhausted, upset, and downright angry it could make me. Proof that decisions, no matter how logical they might seem, are always up for contention.
