Storyline

Following the death of her father, a teenage Dot moves into the home of her godparents and their teenage daughter Nina. Dot arrives wrapped up in the silence of being deaf-mute. She finds a different kind of silence waiting for her in her new home, for this home is a place with a dark secret involving Nina and her father. At first, Dot and Nina seem to be polar opposites. However, they gradually realize how much they have in common. Bringing them together catalyzes a series of events in which both reveal their secrets and shed their double lives. A violent consummation almost destroys them. Yet they find hope for the future in the quiet after the storm. Written by Charles Delacroix

sheer brilliance
30 August 2006 | by gertrudestein900See all my reviews

I saw this movie on opening night with a group of my girlfriends. We were divided on it. A few felt it took itself too seriously. Others, myself included, felt its consistent tone of bleak bewilderment was the source of its humor. Our diverging opinions made me feel that the movie is a true work of art. Most movies manipulate our emotions telling us to laugh, cry, or be scared. Here's a movie that demands so much of its viewer and elicits different reactions in each. For my money though, the whole thing is a satire and everyone is in on the joke. How else to explain the inclusion of the ingenious Katy Mixon as Barbarella in high school? Or Edie Falco's wild eye-rolling turn as a druggie? A friend just alerted me to this amazing You Tube page. Just type in "The Quieter" and you'll see what I mean. For those who appreciated the movie as much as I did, it's icing on the cake. Here's the link:
