What do Billy Bob Thornton, Stephen J. Cannell and Joe Pantoliano have in common with 1.4 billion children and adults worldwide? Dyslexia. They are also featured in DISLECKSIA: THE MOVIE, a powerfully touching and entertaining documentary that mixes humor and perspective with insight and analysis. The film educates and illuminates many misconceptions about dyslexia, while underlining the need for raised awareness, early identification and social change.
Director Harvey Hubbell V explores issues surrounding dyslexia through a very human, personal lens, weaving his own lifelong experience, the research of scientists and the practice of educators, with the life experiences of celebrities, politicians, and adults and children living with dyslexia.
