Storyline

In the bosom of Suburbicon, a family-centred, all-white utopia of manicured lawns and friendly locals, a simmering tension is brewing, as the first African-American family moves in the idyllic community, in the hot summer of 1959. However, as the patriarch Gardner Lodge and his family start catching a few disturbing glimpses of the once welcoming neighbourhood's dark underbelly, acts of unprecedented violence paired with a gruesome death will inevitably blemish Suburbicon's picture-perfect facade. Who would have thought that darkness resides even in Paradise? Written by Nick Riganas

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: [as story book pages are turned] Welcome to Suburbicon, a town of great wonder and excitement. Founded in 1947, Suburbicon was built with the promise of prosperity for all. And in only 12 short years, it has grown from a few small homes to a living, breathing community with all the conveniences of the big city without all the noise or the traffic. And now, with nearly 60,000 residents, they enjoy their own schools, a fire department, and a police department. There's a shopping mall....

Had to watch it twice.
25 August 2018 | by siliconchipmanSee all my reviews

Some reviews are 1, and some reviews are 10 and nothing in between. I can see why now. The first time I watched this, I was working on my laptop simultaneously and missed many important but subtle happenings. The second time, I focussed on the movie. My score went from a chaotic 2 to a rational 10. This is a Hitchcock classic. Even the music included a twist on Psycho music during the tense action scenes. Oh my what a wicked woman was that sister. She even dyed her hair and changed her looks to be as the dead sister. The black action was there for a purpose. When the Insurance guy was screaming from the lye cocktail, his screams were drowned out by the screaming of the crowd at the house out the back. Brilliantly executed. The people who gave this a 1 or 2, need to watch it again and focus. The Filming and costumes and scenery and props were amazing, I could not see anything out of place, but everything I did see brought back childhood memories. I will watch this again. It is up there with other Cohen Bros. movies.
