Sound of Metal Tells the Story of a Drummer Who Loses His Hearing

Amazon Original Movie SOUND OF METAL writer/director Darius Marder and stars Riz Ahmed, Paul Raci, Shaheem Sanchez, Chelsea Lee and Jeremy Stone have a special announcement to share!

During a series of adrenaline-fueled one-night gigs, itinerant punk-metal drummer Ruben (Riz Ahmed) begins to experience intermittent hearing loss. When a specialist tells him his condition will rapidly worsen, he thinks his music career — and with it his life — is over. His bandmate and girlfriend Lou (Olivia Cooke) checks the recovering heroin addict into a secluded sober house for the deaf in hopes it will prevent a relapse and help him learn to adapt to his new situation. But after being welcomed into a community that accepts him just as he is, Ruben has to choose between his equilibrium and the drive to reclaim the life he once knew. Utilizing startling, innovative sound design techniques, director Darius Marder takes audiences inside.
