Family drama about a deaf and hearing couple who struggle to decide whether or not to give their deaf son a cochlear implant.
The Hammer 2010 Rated: PG-13
Matt is a deaf wrestler who wins championships. Even though he was born deaf, he was raised around the hearing. This movie focuses on his attempts to become a champion, but he has to not only fight wrestlers but also discrimination that comes from his deaf peers who believe he has abandoned them. Being a hero to some and a pariah to others, he strives to be an inspiration to wrestlers and the deaf alike. It is a look at the barriers faced by those with disabilities, but it reminds us to remember that whatever issues we have, we can be winners.
