Sam the Deaf

Thought on The Orphan (film)

I'm Deaf, Media


Script (Not exactly as the video): Be warning, there is small spoil in the plot of movie. My thought about the movie called The Orphan. There is quiet big role of deaf perform which is involved with 5 years old daughter, hearing son and hearing parents who know well on the sign language. I realize it as America Sign Language. It looks like if the mother used to be teacher or interpreter for deaf. Yet, there is no confirm that been told. Maybe I miss that part.

Is that good? No, it’s so screw up. However I do like the concept on how is like when I see them as my family experience. Only one thing it bother me, nobody can learn basic ASL in overnight. It’s impossible. Hey, it’s only movie.

    buaaaaahahahahaaha, you make me laugh!!! are you using your voice?? jajajaja, I will watch that movie!!!

  • Nothing to be ashamed of. I know a guy who is completely deaf with the same accent. It is rather a bit high-pitch. Just be yourself. 🙂

    I get made fun of because I have a European accent because my grandmother would speak low German to my mom, which caused her to get a weird accent with her English… which I copied from my mom.

    Thanks for sharing your insight on the movie. I need to see this movie for myself. Is it closed captioned/subtitled?

  • Stellar!

    I enjoyed your review. My puppy was sitting on my lap while I watched. He started barking at you and Dad heard your voice and came to see what was going on!

    You’re so right…it takes a long time to learn to sign. (For hearing people to learn to sign)

  • I watched your review twice…not so much to understand the movie, but just to watch your eloquent and fascinating signs. You express yourself extremely well and I can see you becoming an actor or a teacher or news commentator for us Deaf people. What are your plans for the future?

    Now I’m already convinced by your review on the movie.

    Also, like other said above me..you cracked me up!!

  • What you said about learning ASL overnight. I don’t think she learned it over night. without giving too much of the movie I think she already knew it if you know what I mean. I saw the movie, I liked it, freaked me the hell out! lol
