John Krasinski‘s summer blockbuster A Quiet Place Part II has come under fire for its lack of subtitled screenings.The franchise until now had been praised for its representation of deafness.

The films star deaf actress Millicent Simmonds, and show her character Regan’s deafness as a major strength.However a new report by the National Deaf Children’s Society reveals that only 41% of UK cinemas offered subtitled screenings during the show’s opening week.“Deaf people are just as entitled to enjoy the thrill of the cinema as hearing people, but they’re still not being provided for,” a representative from the charity told Metro.
