Cinema Sound Of Metal (15) 120 minutes

During a series of adrenaline-fueled one-night gigs, nomadic punk-metal drummer Ruben begins to experience intermittent hearing loss. When a specialist tells him his condition will rapidly worsen, he thinks his music career – and with it his life – is over. His bandmate and girlfriend Lou checks the recovering addict into a secluded sober house for the deaf, in hopes it will prevent a relapse and help him learn to adapt to his new situation. But after being welcomed into a community that accepts him just as he is, Ruben has to choose between his equilibrium and the drive to reclaim the life he once knew.
Utilizing startling, innovative sound design techniques, director Darius Marder takes audiences inside Ruben’s experience to vividly recreate his journey into a rarely examined world.

Starring BAFTA & OSCAR nominees Riz Ahmed and Paul Raci, with Olivia Cooke and Matthieu Amalric.
