Sound of Metal

By Darius Marder


Ruben and Lou live togeth­er, two nomads trav­el­ing gig to gig on an end­less Amer­i­can tour. As his girl­friend yells into the micro­phone, Ruben is beat­ing the drums until they glow. But one day he is over­whelmed by a severe ring­ing in his ears. The diag­no­sis comes as a slap in the face: Ruben is suf­fer­ing from a sud­den loss of hear­ing and will soon be com­plete­ly deaf. He is sud­den­ly over­come by anx­i­ety, depres­sion, and soon enough his past addic­tions begin to sur­face. The pair must face a tough deci­sion which will put their life in tur­moil.
