DON’T BREATHE

If you needed money to help you and your sis­ter leave an abu­sive home, would you break into an old blind man’s house (Stephen Lang) to steal $7 mil­lion? Rocky, (Jane Levy), Alex (Dy­lan Min­nette) and Money (Daniel Zo­vatto) do, but they soon dis­cover that it’s ac­tu­ally a se­rial killer’s abode.

Lizzy, a strug­gling, 20-some­thing ac­tress, her al­ter­na­tive ther­a­pist brother Ig, and their Bo­hemian fa­ther Ju­lian share a home in Lon­don and a pro­found grief, as noth­ing has been the same since the death of Mar­garet, the wife and mother who held them all to­gether. Then Lizzy dis­cov­ers she has a half-sis­ter, the re­sult of one of her fa­ther’s af­fairs, and so be­gins a creepy fam­ily drama in which me­mory, de­sire and dis­as­ter col­lide.
