On the island of Monhegan, off the coast of Maine, Michael (Teddy Sears), a revolutionary neuropsychiatrist discovers Liv (Catherine Eaton) a woman who, after years of silence, now weaves a language from Shakespeare’s words. Brought to the island to protect her, their lives collide as he struggles to define what it is he must protect her from. “The Sounding” is a narrative of a woman’s struggle to maintain her independence and find her own unique voice.

Catherine Eaton, writer, director and star of “The Sounding” describes it as a film inspired by Oliver Sacks’ humanity and curiosity about the mind, and Shakespeare’s insights into the human condition.

Reviews

An unforgettable tale about humanity, about embracing those who are marginalized, and about how we should always strive to be something more, something extraordinary.
