As I type through my tears, I believe this film to be one of the most beautiful love stories of all time. It is not merely a story about an "invisible" illness and what it is like to live with such a thing. It is not merely about service dogs. It is about the special, deep and intense love and bond between a woman and her canine. As I was watching, I kept looking at my pal, sleeping by my feet. He is not a trained service dog, but his faithful companionship has kept me going through the most difficult part of my life. I would recommend Adele and Everything After to anyone who has opened their heart to an unconditional love. Thank you, Marty, for allowing your story to be told. Thank you, Melissa Dowler, for recognizing the beauty in this relationship. Thank you, Adele, for showing us that, indeed, dogs are our best friends.
“In Pursuit of Silence,” a remarkable documentary that paradoxically proves that when it comes to silence, there is a lot to be said as well as a great deal to be shown.
Half visual essay, half verbal investigation, “Silence” is thoughtful and informative as well as contemplative and restorative. It both tells you why you perhaps yearn for silence and shows you what it would look like if you could find it. Los Angeles Times
