THE SOUND OF SILENCE

{ FEATURE FILM }

A successful “house tuner” in New York City, who calibrates the sounds in people’s homes in order to adjust their moods, meets a client with a problem he can’t solve. Premiering in the US Narrative Competition at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival. Starring Peter Sarsgaard, Rashida Jones, Tony Revolori, and Austin Pendleton.


A quiet revelation... Debuting feature director Michael Tyburski and co-writer Ben Nabors’ lyrical character study… deftly balances the cerebral with the soulful in a story of transfixing originality.
— The Hollywood Reporter
Michael Tyburski’s debut feature deserves to be listened to at full volume.
— IndieWire
Not since Phantom Thread‘s Reynolds Woodcock has a film captured a character with such an amusing level of utter fixation on his life’s work.
— The Film Stage
Peter Sarsgaard plays him to neurotic perfection, the unappreciated genius surrounded by fools… Rashida Jones is delightful as Ellen, who is drawn to Peter’s intelligence, but put off by his inflexible mania with his discovery.
— Film Threat
