Peter has created a life around being a “house tuner”, whose clients hire him to track down disruptive ambient noises in their homes. Peter Sarsgaard transmits a performance of nuance and subtlety as a man who possesses an eccentric form of genius. Peter seems too gentle to fit into the cutthroat world at large as he goes about his healing ways with tuning forks and recorders.
