Netflix is featuring a movie – Twin Sisters, that was
actually filmed in 2002, but in which the theme may
be painful for some families, especially deaf families.
Two deaf brothers were born in Germany. The hearing
parents divorced. One stayed in Germany, other moved
to USA. As part of the divorce agreement, one brother
stayed with one German parent and the other with the
USA parent. Both brothers grew up with entirely
different cultures and languages. They stayed in
contact with each other, but had problems adjusting
to each other’s culture when they visited each other.
Painful? Yes.
