Amazon Studios has released the first trailer for the 2019 Toronto International Film Festival hit Sound of Metal.
During a series of adrenaline-fueled one-night gigs, 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, Sound of Metal takes audiences inside Ruben’s experience to vividly recreate his journey into a rarely examined world.
Sound of Metal is the debut film from writer/director Darius Marder and co-stars Paul Raci, Lauren Ridloff, Shaheem Sanchez, Chelsea Lee, Jeremy Stone and Mathieu Amalric.
Amazon Studios will release Sound of Metal in theaters November 20 and on Prime Video December 4. Here is the first trailer.
