    Children of a Lesser God

    Watch "Children of a Lesser God" FREE Saturday, January 12 from 2-5pm at Cambridge Citywide Senior Center, 806 Massachusetts Ave., Central Square, Cambridge.

    Starring William Hurt, this 1986 romantic drama is notable in that it marked the film debut for deaf actress Marilee Matlin, who won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance.  Only 21 years old at the time, Matlin is the youngest actress to receive the award and the only deaf Academy Award recipient in any category.  Children of a Lesser God received praise from the Deaf community for its unusually realistic portrayal of conflicting ideologies on speech and deafness between two people in a romantic relationship.
