Two parents do what it takes to keep their children safe in a world full of creatures hunting every sound they can hear. Not a sound can be heard from the family hiding in silence, but all it takes is one noise and everything can go wrong.Written by
Emily Blunt mentioned in interviews that she initially advised John Krasinski to cast her friend for the role of Evelyn Abbott. After reading the script (and loving it and the character), Blunt asked her husband to cast her instead. (The actress had not yet been hired anyway.) See more »
The film opens with the family entering a small grocery store, and we see that they are barefoot. Amazing how when they leave the store after shopping, their feet are still clean. See more »
It's a quiet post-apocalyptic world where monsters are hunting using their superior hearing. Evelyn (Emily Blunt) and Lee Abbott (John Krasinski) are carefully raising their deaf daughter Regan and young son Marcus in this world.
There is something compelling about the silences. If The Artist can clean up the awards, this definitely deserves something. The great thing about the silence is the use of sound. The shock of running water is a real jolt. There is actual tension within the quiet. I'm less impressed with the creatures' weakness which struck me as Mars Attacks! or something like that. In general, this is a nice original idea done well by first time director Krasinski.
