Movie Info

My Beautiful Stutter follows five kids who stutter, ages 9 to 18, from all over the United States and all walks of life, who, after experiencing a lifetime of bullying and stigmatization, meet other children who stutter at an interactive arts-based program, The Stuttering Association for the Young, based in New York City. Their journey to SAY find some close to suicide, others withdrawn and fearful, exhausted and defeated from failed fluency training, societal pressures to not stutter or the decision to remain silent. Over the course of a year we witness first hand the incredible transformation that happens when these young people of wildly different backgrounds experience for the first time the revolutionary idea at the heart of SAY: that it's okay to stutter.

Critic Reviews for My Beautiful Stutter

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

It was filmed during the camp's 2015 session, when the summer program was in North Carolina (it is now in Pennsylvania), and the first screenings took place in 2019. The lessons - for stutterers and non-stutterers - still hold.

It's called My Beautiful Stutter for a reason; it can offer lessons to all of us about learning to love ourselves just as we are.

Everyone has a tale to tell, both specific and universal. Life can be a challenge, but the rewards are worth the wait.

The film's narrow focus make it more an expression of support for those who stutter and those trying to make stutterers' lives better than an "explainer," a movie that covers a lot more ground on the subject.

[An] elegantly profound documentary.
