A Quiet Place directed by John Krasinski has raked in over $50 million opening weekend and has also received 97 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. This quiet thriller is a nail-biting film that starts off by showing a sweet family scene that quickly turns violent when the youngest child is murdered right in front of them by a monster that is blind, but kills it’s pray by finding the source of the sound it makes.

The family spends their life being quiet sometimes making little sounds here or there until the wife must give birth to her third child.

In my opinion being silent has made them a more tightly knit family having to work together all the time and communicating mostly by sign language.

Millicent Simmonds who was nominated for a BFCA Critics’ Choice Award for Best Young Actor also known as Regan Abbott in the movie is was my favorite character she is rebellious, very independent, and also deaf in real life.

The whole movie she feels responsible for her youngest brother’s death in the beginning, but in the end she ends up kind of being the hero in the movie, and helps her mom defeat the monsters in order to survive. The total silence factor made the jump scares that much more enjoyable The movie overall was amazing and I 100 percent recommend it, the only con to the movie is the non actions parts because there is no real dialogue it is just the family doing daily tasks in silence, but for being the third movie Krasinski has directed he did a phenomenal job considering it might be an Oscar nomination.
