Why would a woman living on a remote Maine island choose to not speak? The Sounding is a beautifully envisioned film that explores this psychological mystery. With a hint of an Oliver Sachs case, the story of Liv (portrayed by director Catherine Eaton), eerily unfolds. After the death of her grandfather, a renowned neurologist who raised her, Liv, who has been silent for years, begins to speak in a language disquietingly her own. But when a driven neurologist, recruited to protect her, instead commits Liv to a psychiatric hospital, the once sedate women becomes a full-blown rebel. In a scenario that ebbs and flows from harsh to tender, romance to violence, Liv's refusal to conform threatens to keep her locked up forever. A film as impassioned as its protagonist, The Sounding is a voice for those who have the courage to be different. — Jeff Morris
