-“Who are we if we can’t protect them? We have to protect them”
A Quiet Place follows a family who adopts certain conditions to survive an earth-wide invasion of monsters with hyper-sensitive hearing.
Despite being a silent film, A Quiet Place has a lot to say. The movie picks up three months after the invasion of the earth and uses crafty mediums, (such as newspaper clippings) to inform the audience about the current state of the world.
Over time, the movie also shows the level of care and precaution the Abbott family takes to outlive the alien apocalypse.
From walking on soft sand to avoid noisy footsteps of using leaves as plates and hands as cutlery. We see that this unique family have a plan for everything. (well almost everything).
But all this caution is not without reason, for the threat they hide from is real. Unlike most thrillers with similar plot points, A Quiet Place delivers a quick and instant death to any false move.
The movie found new and exciting ways of placing members of this family in terrible situations. And even without words, you could feel the gravity of the dilemma each character faced.
However, A Quiet Place isn’t all about monsters trying to murder noisy people, but rather about the extent people will go to keep their loved ones safe.What we Wouldn't do to protect the ones we love #AQuietPlace Click To Tweet
I never thought ninety-five minutes of silence could leave me both impressed and eager for a sequel. But A Quiet Place manages to accomplish both.
