Not Rated (I would rate as PG or PG-13)
Although there is no swearing or bad language, there is strong language used throughout this documentary as family arguments occur. There is also a small section where surgery is shown, it is not in detailed and only lasts a few seconds. However, it also appears in this documentary.
Sound and Fury is a documentary that follows two brother's families and their decision on whether or not to get their child a cochlear implant.
Peter, his wife (Nita), and their children are all Deaf. One day their daughter, Heather, asks says she wants to get a cochlear implant. Being a Deaf family, they have to think if this is the right decision for them. They do not need a cochlear implant to communicate with each other and are able to navigate through the hearing world.
Chris and his wife are hearing but one of their newborn twins, Christopher, is deaf. Chris and his wife, Mari, know ASL. Chris' brother and his family are Deaf and Mari's mother and father are Deaf. They are not opposed to sign language or the Deaf community but they believe getting the implant for their son will be the best option for them.
Fighting begins as all family members begin to weigh in on the decision making. Peter and Chris' mother, Emily, wants her granddaughter to get the cochlear implant. Her husband agrees with her. Mari's parents, Nancy and Michael, do not understand why Mari wants to take their grandchild away from their culture.
