When acting with your heart moves us…

Great recommendations by Chaz Ebert’s of the top 16  films that are heartfelt. When you act with your heart, those who are deaf can listen with their heart too.

From the movie: The Room

1. ROOM – “The story of a mother and son locked in a shelter by her kidnapper, and forced to live as captives in one room.  As I listened with my heart, I absorbed the deep connection of the mother-son bond, and saw how she not only protected him, but depended on him for her own sanity.”

 

2. 99 HOMES –  “It places a human face on the recent shameful period in our nation when the bundling of stock derivatives and irresponsible loans caused an economic housing bubble that resulted in the loss of homes by thousands of people all over the country.”

Malala Yousafzai

From the movie: He named me Malala.

3. HE NAMED ME MALALA – “The Pakistani girl who was shot by the Taliban because she spoke out about wanting an education for herself and other girls in Pakistan. Watching Malala grow in her resolve to advocate for education and equality—Even after being left in a coma with months of rehabilitation to regain the ability to speak and walk—was the highest inspiration.”

4. MISS YOU ALREADY – “A joyous exploration of the friendship between two lifelong friends  who share everything, until the friendship becomes fractured by illness and a pregnancy.”

5. BROOKLYN –  “Inviting us to feel the glow of newfound love as experienced by a wide-eyed Irish immigrant seeking to make a new life for herself in America. It reminds us of how a good love story can sweep up our emotions without resorting to sexual explicitness.”
