“A Quiet Place” was written and directed by “The Office” star John Krasinski, who also starred in the film.
Characters played by himself and his real-life wife, Emily Blunt, raise three kids in a post-alien apocalypse. Their eldest child, played by Millicent Simmonds, is deaf.

Therefore, the family moves slowly and tiptoes everywhere that isn’t white sand laid down to muffle their footsteps.
