The crossed-out faces are those whom Ishida can't "look straight at/face/am blocking out".

The movie does an excellent job potraying deafness and the struggles people with it face. The question then becomes what is the cause of Shoko's deafness, and can gene therapy possibly help some of those struggling with hearing loss?

I would disagree with that, actually. The way it portrays the whole thing is too melodramatic and generally used to have the MC play knight in shining armor. It feels more like an otaku fantasy than a genuine portrayal of the sort of situations someone with a disability has to deal with.

I think it does a good job of making the average person who normally wouldn't give a cr*p be more sympathetic to someone with that problem. Especially the average person in Japanese society who likes to be mean to anyone unusual. At the very least, it probably helps otaku's be nicer on average.
