A powerful film that evokes what it's actually like to lose your hearing, Sound of Metal won both Oscar and BAFTA awards for sound (as well as editing). It features a strong performance from Riz Ahmed as Ruben, the drummer of metal duo Blackgammon and a former drug addict. Along with his girlfriend/manager Lou (Olivia Cooke) on guitar /vocals, Ruben drifts from gig to gig until, just before a soundcheck, his hearing all but disappears. Tests reveal that his hearing loss will not improve and he must avoid what he loves best: making music. His journey from rage to understanding is nuanced and subtle, avoiding rock cliches.
