Family success

“A Quiet Place” tells us a story about a family with 4 members who has to keep silence in a dystopian world as they become hunted by the horrible monsters that can only hear sounds. Quite interesting fact is that the main actors are also a family.

John Krasinski (“The Office”) is a director and the main actor of the movie, his costar is Emily Blunt (“Sicario,” 2015), who is his wife in the real world too.

Krasinski  directed and starred in Brief Interviews with Hideous Men (2009), The Hollars (2016) before working on “A Quiet Place.” The last one can be called the most successful not only in his career but in the whole modern horror movie history.

“Director-star Krasinski creates a new horror classic about a family that can only stay alive if no one makes a sound. Emily Blunt delivers a tour de force of silent emotion as approaching monsters fry your nerves to a frazzle,” Peter Travers for Rolling Stone.
