Storyline

Two sisters, Grace and Violet, bound together by more than blood, live a reclusive life in a large mansion, detached from society and reality too. They have a plan. It's hardly conventional, but the outcome nine months later is all that counts. Whatever they do they must not fall in love with the man that they choose to ensnare. Set in contemporary New England.

This is a REALLY good movie ,
20 June 2006 | by (Viet Nam) – See all my reviews

At the time I write this comment, Silence Becomes You only have 3.5* , but it bases on opinion of a few people (in IMDb, 250 can be a few)so don't trust the number 3.5 if you want to watch an arty , indie film . Some guys here said that it's only look-a-like-arty but this statement only show that they don't know what is art or they just don't care anything when they didn't like a movie .

In my opinion, every movie that can make me fell interested till the ending credit in a good movie. This movie did . Just like many indie films that some time have plot less scripts (this film's not) can put ending in everywhere but keep inside great emotion , have talented idea in prohibiting the theme (maybe very ordinary), show responsibility and thoughts in cinematography and soundtrack. Silence Become You is dark, is Gothic , is fantasy, is surreal and touching , truly romantic and sometime disturbing a little . Although its story is very simple but it isn't dumb. It's a gem with beautiful set (victorian interior with color scheme look like oil painting ), high quality pictures and awesome soundtrack .

I won't say that this film's perfect but it's a completely worth seeing movie and being underrated.
