A QUIET PLACE (M)
FOR WHOM THE DECIBEL TOLLS, US, 93 MIN
See A Quiet Place ‘cold’ and brace yourself for a lasting, powerful chill. If you do get to experience this brilliant apocalyptic thriller with nothing more than your guard down, eyes up and ears open (trust me, this last condition is of utmost importance), then you will witness one of the most unforgettable and best movies of 2018. The movie is set in a near future where some kind of catastrophic event has all but emptied our planet. Those few who remain alive do so by strictly observing a vow of complete silence. The slightest noise is a certain death sentence. A close-knit family of survivors is about to face an absolute day of reckoning in a world where a single sound can seal several fates: the mother (Emily Blunt) has fallen pregnant, and will soon be giving birth. What follows is nerve-shredding, spellbinding and compellingly impossible to turn away from. Co-starring (and impressively directed by) John Krasinski.
