Based on the award-winning manga by Yoshitoki Ōima, A SILENT VOICE is the wrenchingly poignant animated tale of a deaf girl who falls into a complicated relationship with the school bully.
“Sensual, beguiling, riveting.”
– Maggie Lee, Variety
“A beguiling film: subtle, sensuous and delicate.”
– Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
“Wrenchingly honest – shines a potent light on bullying.”
– Charles Solomon, Los Angeles Times
A deaf elementary school girl, Shoko Nishimiya, upon transferring, meets a boy named Shoya Ishida in her new class. Shoya, who is not deaf, leads the class in bullying Shoko, because she is deaf. As the bullying continues, the class starts to bully Shoya for bullying Shoko.
After graduating from elementary school, Shoko and Shoya do not speak to each other… until later, when Shoya, tormented over his past, decides he must see Shoko once more. Shoya wants to make amends for what he did in elementary school and be Shoko’s friend.
