The Quiet Hour 's Greatest Threat Comes from Within: A Movie Review

Director/writer: Stéphanie Joalland. Cast: Dakota Blue Richards, Karl Davies, Jack McMullen and Brigitte Millar. The Quiet Hour is a science fiction drama. From Stéphanie Joalland, the film takes place during an alien invasion. Characters can only emerge from their hideaways for two hours a day and the local cannibals take advantage of these 120 minutes. Meanwhile, a desperate family struggles to survive, in these dire circumstances. Strangely, there are a number of suicidal characters, in this outing; they crack under the many pressures. And, the focus of the film is more on interaction and dialogue, versus action or story elements. The film is slowly paced through early acts, but the film is well produced, overall. Most science fiction fans will enjoy this indie film outing. Sarah (Dakota Blue Richards) is the protagonist of the film. The opening scene involves Sarah, burying her father. He has fallen victim to an alien attack.
