Indie Film, Rocket Science, Features Stuttering Character

On a lighter note, here is the trailer for Rocket Science, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2007. The movie’s main character, Hal Hefner, is a stuttering high school boy who decides to join the debate team when its star debater, Ginny, recruits him.  He attempts different methods to overcome his stutter during debate rounds, including singing his speeches. Although the movie doesn’t specifically deal with speech therapy, it does attempt to portray the difficulties that stutterers face in their daily lives. Plus, it’s pretty comical.
