The Sound of Silence
Sep 20 — Sep 29, 2019
Through his job as a New York City “house tuner,” the hyper-methodical Peter (Peter Sarsgaard) works to diagnose the discordant ambient noises – produced by everything from wind patterns to humming electrical appliances – adversely affecting his clients’ moods. When he takes on the particularly difficult case of Ellen (Rashida Jones), a lonely woman plagued by chronic exhaustion, Peter finds that the mysteries of the soul may be even greater than the mysteries of sound. A quietly moving portrait of a harmony-obsessed man learning to embrace the dissonances of human emotion, The Sound of Silence invites viewers to hear the world with fresh ears.
