In Sound of Metal, a punk-metal drummer named Reuben (Riz Ahmed) begins to have intermittent hearing loss. When a hearing doctor tells him that his condition is getting worse, he thinks his music career, and his entire life are over. His girlfriend and singer for his band, Lou (Olivia Cooke) tries to get him to adapt to his new situation by sending him to a community of other deaf people experiencing a similar loss. Now Reuben has to choose to adapt to his new life, or to try desperately to get back to his old one.

The film comes from director Darius Marder, making his feature directorial debut, and stars Riz Ahmed, Olivia Cooke, Paul Raci, Lauren Ridloff, Shaheem Sanchez, Chelsea Lee, Jeremy Stone and Mathieu Amalric. It looks like an inspiring movie about adaptation, growth, and change, and reviews out of the festival circuit have been phenomenal.

Check out the trailer.

The Sound of Metal premieres on December 4th on Amazon Prime Video (and in select theaters on November 20th).
