Canadian Theatrical News: A Silent Voice: The Movie

Eleven Arts and Cineplex are bringing Kyoto Animation’s adaptation of Yoshitoki Oima’s A Silent Voice manga series to theatres across Canada this November. The film, which is directed by Naoko Yamada (K-On, Tamako Market, Sound! Euphonium) and written by Reiko Yoshida (Aria the Animation, Deltora Quest, Emma: A Victorian Romance), opened in Japan on September 17, 2016 and became one of the country’s highest grossing films last year.

Curiously, A Silent Voice: The Movie has yet to land a North American home video distributor. While an English dub does exist, all of the following screenings will be in Japanese with English subtitles.

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.
