Riz Ahmed might have given the best performance of the year; Rubin’s journey is believable and you really feel for him. Sound design and narrative flow are pluses, too!

The writing leaves some unanswered questions, which viewers may interpret either as frustrating or as a reflection of the protagonist, who finds himself rudderless when he loses his hearing. Either way, Ahmed’s performance goes a long way in holding the film together.

This remarkably assured debut ... uses the medium of cinema to its fullest extent, both visually and aurally.

A film about the sudden onset of deafness that is too attentive to specifics of character and setting to ever feel like a rote disability drama.
