A note to subtitle/caption users
(1 out of 5 stars)
"Given that this film stars a deaf actress and that I had seen this movie on Lifetime TV with captioning- I had no reason to suspect that the dvd would come WITHOUT CAPTIONS. As a deaf viewer, I was severely disappointed in this product. The film itself is good entertainment- but what's there to enjoy if you can't understand the dialogue?"
Suspenseful Murder Trial

"Take a murder and throw in deafness, old flames, jealousy, maintaining a perfect trial record---and you've got a good movie. That this movie does.A deaf witness, a jealous, ambitious wife of son of Senatorial candidate, potential funds comingling, old romance between Prosecutor and Defense Attornies-- makes one think all the time at potential subplots and outcomes.For sure I was into the wife of Russ doing the murder, but knew that was too obvious---it had to be someone else. Won't begin to give that away for those who haven't yet seen. Ending was surprise that took me off guard.Acting was good all around. Martin is excellent."
Where is the Closed Captioning????

"This movie is entertaining enough to hold your interest. I purchased it to show my students who are deaf, but to my dismay- there is no closed captioning! This is unacceptable! They make a movie with an actress who is deaf and then they don't caption the DVD for other individuals who are deaf to be able to access the content?! I was very disappointed- and very tired- after I had to interpret the entire film for my class. I hope the "powers that be" will remedy this soon."
