Entertainment Weekly published this video item, entitled “Riz Ahmed On His Groundbreaking ‘Sound of Metal’ Performance | The Awardist | Entertainment Weekly” – below is their description.
It’s been almost two years since Sound of Metal premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. In that long timespan, where so much of the world has changed, the film hits differently now.
“[My character Ruben] suddenly faces a health crisis [that] forces him into a lockdown where everything he thought defined him has been taken away,” the film’s star Riz Ahmed, nominated for the Best Actor Oscar, explains. “And I think in the context of 2020 and the pandemic, that is a journey a lot of people have been on: Go, go, go. And this is who I am. This is my life. This is what gives me meaning. And all of a sudden the rug has been pulled from under them. Ruben’s journey is one that almost feels like a microcosm of what we’ve been going through as a society.”Entertainment Weekly YouTube Channel
