There is a symphony of almost undetectable sounds that make up a moment of silence, and Peter Lucian (Peter Sarsgaard, Experimenter, Blue Jasmine) is determined to catalogue them all. Creating his unique job as a New York City “house tuner,” the hyper-methodical Peter works meticulously to diagnose the discordant ambient noises—produced by everything from wind patterns to humming electrical appliances—adversely affecting his clients’ moods. With single-minded devotion Peter pursues pure research on sound, aided by his admiring assistant Samuel (Tony Revolori, The Grand Budapest Hotel), while fending off corporate sell-out offers. When Peter 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. Great sound design enhances this moody, memorable story, directed and co-written by Michael Tyburski, in his feature debut.
