“A Quiet Place” makes noise at box office Reply

By Danielle Hogan – Arts Editor

“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. Because of this, the family is well-versed in sign language. The alien creatures don’t have eyes; they have strong hearing that can detect any loud sound. Therefore, the family moves slowly and tiptoes everywhere that isn’t white sand laid down to muffle their footsteps.

Thirty Seconds to Mars’s fifth album “America” springs out multiple messages of activism and religious imagery throughout its verses. However, the album succeeds where others don’t; the band doesn’t allow their cries of hope to overshadow the strong quality of their music.
