Teaching old dogs new tricks
This film was an audience favorite at Sundance, and it is easy to see why. I was captivated from the beginning and just could not turn away.
The Taylors were 65 years old when they decided they wanted to hear for the first time. They managed to live their lives successfully (he is responsible for TTY) and raise three children, but they wanted to do more.
They decided to get cochlear implants, and this film is the road to that operation, and how they adjusted to hearing. It is a feel-good film, not for any magical ending, but for our sharing in the lives of these two people and the love they had for each other.
If you need some inspiration in your life, then this is the film to see.
