Sound of Metal is a double Oscar winner reminiscent of Damien Chazelle’s Whiplash (2014).

Ruben (Riz Ahmed) and his girlfriend, Lou (Olivia Cooke) are on tour with their punk metal band when he begins to experience hearing loss. As the band’s drummer, Ruben is alarmed that his career and life as he knows it is about to come to an abrupt end. Fearing that Ruben will fall back into a spiral of drug use, Lou organises for him to join a small deaf community for addicts. 

Whilst Ruben battles to cling onto the life he knows, his new community silently embraces him.
