Reason We’re Watching It: We loved the concept behind “A Quiet Place.” In a sea of movie reboots, this film is a breath of fresh creativity. The idea of silence being a big part of the movie peaked our interest. It’s actually a totally different moviegoing experience, and we’re happy to say our audience was well-behaved and quietly waiting on the edge of their seats.
What It’s About: Creatures that possess a keen sense of hearing have ravaged the human race. A family lives in solitude and silence on a farm while being stalked by these menacing beasts. While “A Quiet Place” is a suspenseful horror movie, there is actually a much deeper story of family and the difficult relationships their situation has forced upon them.
Whoah! Rewind That!: Lee (Krasinski) is away from the farm teaching his son, Marcus (Jupe) how they fish for food and navigate the terrain to keep from making a sound. Meanwhile Lee’s wife, Evelyn (Blunt), goes into labor while the creatures descend on their house. No spoilers, but what follows is one of the most intense, nail-biting moments we have seen in a movie in quite some time.
Watercooler-Worthy Tidbit: Krasinski not only starred in “A Quiet Place,” he also directed the film. Krasinski’s wife, Blunt, played his wife in the movie as well.
And that’s why we’re giving it…
