Set in rural England and inspired by real life events. The Silent Child centres around a profoundly deaf four year old girl named Libby who is born into a middle class family and lives in a world of silence until a caring social worker teaches her the gift of communication.
How often do you sit down and watch something, agree it's fundamentally incredible say it deserves to win an Oscar and it never does. Fortunately for this superb presentation justice has been served. The film itself is sensitive, thought provoking, and genuinely gives you a reasoned insight into what life must be like for Libby, the frustrations and struggles, but also the truth that the human spirit seems able to overcome anything. A heart breaking watch for most of us, but such an important message shared. Young Maisie Sly is absolutely incredible, how proud must her loved ones be of her. Wonderful.
