“A Quiet Place” is a new type of post-apocalyptic, horror film packed with emotion and a powerful storyline around topics of family and sacrifice. Director John Krasinski plays the father and co-stars among Emily Blunt who plays the mother.
Additionally, the couple has three children including Noah Jupe and Millicent Simmonds, who is deaf in real life. She greatly helped with allowing the movie to accurately portray the life of a deaf adolescent.
Ironically, the movie contains very minimal dialogue due to the fact that the family has to stay to quiet in order to survive. Throughout the entire film, they communicate using sign language and walk everywhere as quietly as possible in order to avoid the alien creatures that kill their prey at any sound made.
One of the most most heart-wrenching scenes in the movie is when the young son in the family creates multiple loud noises with his toy rocket, inevitably leading to the sound-hunting creatures on the track to murder.
Even though the theater may be extremely quiet, there’s no doubt that the amazing visual storytelling along with the expressional characters would evoke many emotions.
During an interview with TORYmax, Krasinski explained that the movie was “really about family…about the extremes that you would go to to protect your kids,” which adds to the sense of empowerment and intensity to the entire film.
In all, this movie is filled with numerous jumpscares and a unique plot. So if you’re looking for a good thriller or something to get you on the edge of your seat, then “A Quiet Place” is the perfect film to watch. And don’t worry if horror films aren’t your type, because this movie is unlike any other.
