Josh O’Connor, Paul Mescal Teaming for Romance ‘The History of Sound’

The film — announced by production company End Cue — is described as a “universal love story” to be directed by Oliver Hermanus, winner of the Queer Palm in 2011.

The story follows two young men, Lionel (Mescal) and David (O’Connor), who, during the WWI period, set out to record the lives, voices and music of their countrymen. In this snatched, short-lived moment in their young lives, and while discovering the epic sweep of the USA, both men are deeply changed.

I was seventeen when I met David, back in 1916. Now I don’t very much care to count my age. It’s April 1972 here in Cambridge. White puffballs that must be some sort of seedpod have been floating by the window above my writing desk for days, collecting on the sidewalk like first snow.
