Ruben, a drummer and former heroin addict, lives life on the road with his girlfriend Lou, travelling around in a R.V. and playing shows as the two-person metal band BlackGammon. Overnight, Ruben loses his hearing and has no idea where to turn, desperate to maintain his normal life but overcome by panic and anxiety. After a medical diagnosis that does nothing to quell Ruben’s fears, the two travel to a commune for the small section of society that are both deaf and in recovery from addiction. It is here that Ruben must confront his future and learn to adapt to a new world, one without sound and therefore without music. Empathetic without being condescending and led by a gripping and committed performance from Riz Ahmed, Sound of Metal explores the nuances and philosophies of the wider deaf community.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
