“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.
