Julianne Moore learns sign language for film Wonderstruck
American actress Julianne Moore has said that she learned American Sign Language to prepare for her role as a deaf woman in new movie ‘Wonderstruck’.
The movie will show the actress playing two parts, one as a silent movie star in 1927 and second as a deaf woman in 1977.
Moore spent two months learning American Sign Language and then got suggestions to improve her sign from deaf actress Millicent Simmonds.
‘Wonderstruck’ film tells the story of a young boy in the Midwest and about a young girl in New York from fifty years ago as they both find the same secret connection at the same time.
