The Sound of Silence
The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of the Sundance hit and critically-acclaimed new film “The Sound of Silence” Oct. 11-16 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
Peter Sarsgaard and Rashida Jones star in this quietly moving tale of a successful “house tuner” who becomes stifled when he meets a client he can’t quite tune into.
There are a symphony of almost undetectable sounds that make up a moment of silence, and Peter Lucian (Peter Sarsgaard) is determined to catalogue them all. Through his job as a New York City “house tuner,” the hyper-methodical Peter works meticulously to diagnose the discordant ambient noises — produced by everything from wind patterns to humming electrical appliances — adversely affecting his clients’ moods.
When he takes on the particularly difficult case of Ellen (Rashida Jones), a lonely woman plagued by chronic exhaustion, Peter finds that the mysteries of the soul may be even greater than the mysteries of sound.
A quietly moving portrait of a harmony-obsessed man learning to embrace the dissonances of human emotion, “The Sound of Silence” invites viewers to hear the world with fresh ears.
“A revelation. Lyrical. Soulful. Transfixing. Almost magical.” — David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
