On the surface, stuttering is syllable repetitions, prolongations, blocks, and various physical tics. But as he illustrates in THE WAY WE TALK, stuttering is like an iceberg, with the major symptoms below the surface. Emotions caused by the disorder— anxiety, depression, denial, and a negative self-image—are rarely confronted in speech therapy or even by people who stutter. Turner explores his own experiences with stuttering and presents the stories of others who are part of the self-help movement within the stuttering community—stories that are relatable to anyone who has experienced feelings of separateness, isolation, or inadequacy in any area their life, and are trying to make the most of who they are.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/div\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\n\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ciframe src=\"https:\/\/player.vimeo.com\/video\/153298309?color=ffffff\u0026amp;title=0\u0026amp;byline=0\u0026amp;portrait=0\" webkitallowfullscreen=\"\" mozallowfullscreen=\"\" allowfullscreen=\"\" frameborder=\"0\" height=\"281\" width=\"500\"\u003e\u003c\/iframe\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\/153298309\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eThe Way We Talk (Trailer)\u003c\/a\u003e from \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\/collectiveeyefilms\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eCollective Eye Films\u003c\/a\u003e on \u003ca href=\"https:\/\/vimeo.com\" style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003eVimeo\u003c\/a\u003e.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003cimg src=\"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0133\/2562\/files\/Laurel_Spread_large.png?9448548627209664429\" alt=\"The Way We Talk laurels \"\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cmeta charset=\"utf-8\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\n\u003cdiv style=\"text-align: left;\"\u003e\n\u003ch3\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eReviews \/ Quotes:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/h3\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: #000000;\"\u003e \"Director Michael Turner decided to make a documentary about stuttering after a friend asked him to explain what it was like.

The campers worry about their prospects in terms of job interviews and professions that involve verbal communication, but the camaraderie with other stutterers gives them confidence. Turner follows up by joining a group in Portland, OR, where he meets Ian, who becomes a friend, and Glenn, a speech therapist, who describes stuttering as \"brain-based\" rather than psychological. ...  [P]eople who stutter- as well as family and friends- will find much to relate to here.

Outgoing Denise, who has severely low vision, feels empowered when she lands a key role in a school production of INTO THE WOODS. Would - be band drummer Isaac dreams of becoming the first blind U.S. president, but inappropriate relationships with female students endanger his enrollment at school. Meagan's low self - esteem stemming from her disability spurs her excel in classes, and she emerges as valedictorian. Self-reliant Chas is proud that he has left the dormitory and gotten an apartment - cherishing his independence - but then is left in desperate straits when his roommate splits (his rap lament gives the film its title). Although very little is heard from administrators here, the teens and their stories easily carry the film, which offers a compelling and realistic look at life at the 150 -year-old school.

The documentary captures the high school students’ everyday experiences as they navigate their social lives, personal challenges, and reflect their personal development.
