The family is weak, and the supporting cast isn't much of a cast at all. Yes, there's other siblings, but they aren't impressionable or notable in any way.
The artistic finesse of the film leaves, perhaps, just a little bit more to be desired - it's a case of applauding a message more than its overeager medium.
Beautifully shot and scored though it is, it's the strength of the writing and Shelton's deeply compassionate performance that really makes this one soar.
Extraordinary production... [Full review in Spanish]
It's an unusual sort of bigotry on display here, one that many of us who aren't personally touched by the issue may not even be aware of. Absolutely heartbreaking.
The filmmakers do not want you to feel good after this short, they want you to think.
The film reflects the biases faced by deaf people simply for being different and to the urgent need for change to give them equitable access to the world.
[Rachel] Shenton is an advocate for the deaf, but she also gives Libby's parents just enough depth to explain why they aren't spending enough time with their daughter.
Realistic and moving, with beautiful cinematography, this is a stirring call for awareness of the plight of deaf schoolchildren.
The Silent Child illuminates the intrinsic value of children, perfect and not.
The film is literally a 20-minute PSA ... but the main character dynamic is sweet and sad and has enough of an emotional payoff anyway.
The Silent Child doesn't build its tension from the threat of violence, like many of the other nominees, but in some ways, it's even more difficult to watch.
