John Krasinski (Jim from the US version of The Office) makes his directorial debut and stars alongside his real-life wife, the wonderful Emily Blunt, in this terrifying tale of desperate parents scrambling to keep their kids (including Wonderstruck's Millicent Simmonds) safe in the ruins of the world where humanity's only hope for survival is silence. Total. Silence.
Blunt and Krasinski mine their experience as parents and their tremendous chemistry to create a taut, terrifying film experience which makes superb use of sound and its absence. A toy space shuttle's "blast off" noise has never been so alarming.
