Review: Too much empty space, not enough detail to tell the audience the film’s purpose. The tagline only speaks to the viewer if they’ve already seen the trailer.

Trailer Rating: B

Review: The premise is well executed in this trailer, giving the audience an idea of the enormity of the central character’s ailment. The trailer doesn’t stick with the aural motif that makes it so interesting at the start, but it does a sufficient job suggesting it might not be completely abandoned in the film itself.

Oscar Prospects:

It could find itself in the Best Sound race, but it’s unclear what its competition will be at this juncture.
