My awesomely cool friend Scott sent me the following information:
I don't know how relevant this is to you and your career…. but I remember you saying you wanted to see Rory O'Shea was Here, so I thought this might also be in the same vein.
This movie is the true story about Richard Pimentel, who lost his hearing in Viet Nam and ended up coming back to the states and did a lot of major groundwork for the Americans With Disabilities Act. The story is great and the acting was pretty good too.
if you get bored and want to see a movie… there's a good one! (not as good as Into The Wild!)
