I can't find this on Amazon Prime, I think the info in the opening post must be for the US service. Some info about a UK cinema release this month which will be pointless! They need to get this onto a streaming service.

It’s out there on the high seas (obviously), we watched it at the weekend and loved it.

 

I see Riz got some award recently for his performance, looking forward to enjoying it but I'll wait until it arrives on a streaming service.

I assume it refers to the implants too.

Looking forward to this...but..does it have a lot of high pitch whine sounds used to illustrate his deafness? 

 

Storyline spoiler, but essentially yes:

Once he gets his implants (quite a way in) there's a very grating and unpleasant representation of how the world might sound to him. It's not constant, but it's harsh enough.

Obviously you might not want to read the spoiler above, so I’ll just say that yes, it has some, but possibly not a lot. Didn’t really think too much to the film in the end, really.

Yeah, this was wonderful but totally heartbreaking. Amazing insight into the world of deaf people. So, so interesting.

 

I had no idea how much it would lean into the themes of denial and addiction too. The ending was shattering and I do mean that in a good way. So powerful.

Enjoyed this a lot. Riz Ahed does a lot of acting with his eyes at the beginning of the movie - wild and darting, completely full of fear and panic. It was entirely infectious. He’s brilliant throughout.
