Here’s a trailer for an emotional film titled Sound of Metal that tells the story of a heavy-metal drummer whose life is thrown into freefall when he begins to lose his hearing. This looks like a great movie and it stars two extremely talented actors that include Riz Ahmed and Olivia Cooke.
Here’s the synopsis:
“Ruben is a drummer and one half of the duo Blackgammon along with his singer girlfriend Lou. A former drug addict, he is sober for four years. Suddenly, he begins to lose his hearing. His sponsor makes him go meet Joe, who leads a deaf community. With the help from them, Ruben struggles to accept his situation.”
Losing your hearing can be an extremely scary thing. That’s actually the line of work that my wife is in, so I’ve heard plenty of stories. She’s always reminding us to protect our hearing because it’s something that we can easily lose if we don’t.
This movie tells a moving and inspirational story, and I’ll be looking forward to checking it out. Sound of Metal opens in theaters November 20th and premieres on Amazon Prime Video December 4th.
