A year after this movie was made, the movie was shown at a community college in two parts (class sessions) by the Basic Sign Language class instructor. I was fascinated to watch this story about a deaf boy who befriends an orangutan. It was a great way to reinforce what we had learned in class. I found this movie not only a good movie for the whole family to see (although some younger kids may cringe or get scared while watching the bullying scene), but seeing the deaf boy talking with his voice touched my heart, Every time I watch those touching scenes, I cry. This movie is worth your time and a great way to reinforce ASL or learn ASL. I highly recommend it!
