Riz Ahmed astounds in this Oscar-winning, empathetic story of a drummer who begins to lose his hearing.
Ruben (Ahmed) is an ex-addict and a drummer in a heavy metal punk duo with his girlfriend Lou (Olivia Cooke). The couple live out of a beat-up RV, stopping at new cities and banging out frenzied, ferocious sets night after night. Ruben starts to suffer from ringing in his ears, which rapidly progresses to drastic hearing loss, as voices become muffled and far away. After a doctor reveals the loss is permanent, Ruben struggles to accept his new reality and let go of the things that have always defined him.
In his remarkable directorial debut, Darius Marder uses innovative and experimental sound design to create powerful soundscapes that intimately take us on Ruben’s sonic journey and his interior disorientation as he adjusts to a life with less sound. Charging through the film is a raw and astonishing performance from Riz Ahmed, once again proving him as one of the finest and most versatile actors in contemporary film.
