Music Within (2007)

From NetFlix: After losing his hearing as a soldier during the Vietnam War, Richard Pimentel (Ron Livingston) returns to America, where he falls in with an unlikely circle of friends and finds a new calling as a spokesman for the disabled. His activist efforts eventually lead to the creation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. This inspiring and entertaining true story won the Audience Award at the 2007 AFI Dallas International Film Festival. 2007 93 minutes.

DJE: This is a fairly light-hearted discussion of important topics. The DVD has an interview with the protagonist, Richard Pimental, which is extraordinary (don't miss it!)
