Storyline

Six teens who were traumatized by child abuse early in their lives come together to form a gang that ultimately plots revenge against the ones who committed the crimes against them. The gang leader (Harley Smith) is the only one who has something of a normal life, living at a hotel where he is an apprentice and friends with the managers (Roy Hudd, Jeanie Drynan) who are like surrogate parents to him. However, when the others start to attack their tormentors, Smith is drawn into the conflagaration also. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Brilliant and worth taking the time to see.
4 June 2000 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I found a "Kind of Hush" to be a profoundly moving experience. The young, mostly unknown, actors bring a fresh, simple yet highly skillful presence to the screen. The direction subtly goes beyond the anger and the violence to reveal the love, affection and support that exists between the young boys. This feels particularly significant considering they are attempting to deal with the pain and distress brought into their lives by others. Writer/director Brian Stirner shows sensitivity and talent in his first film. Excellent performances by all the cast; there are also great moments of humour. If this is an example of how Stirner works, I very much look forward to his future projects.
