The Secret Life of Words (2005)

A hearing impaired factory worker gives up her first holiday in years and instead travels out to an oil rig, where she cares for a man suffering from severe burns.

Harrowing and gripping, but quite far-fetched story is told subtly and slowly, but mainly convinces on Sarah Polley's outstanding performance.

Maltin***: "Intriguing character study with a great performance by Polley and agreeable sketches of the motley characters who work on the rig."
