Quiet, The

An unnerving little psychological study that makes the most of the high-def aesthetic.
- Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News
Babbit's flair for menace and allure can't be dismissed; nor can the magnetism of Cuthbert and Belle.
- Gene Seymour, Newsday


Popular cheerleader Nina Deer’s (Elisha Cuthbert) seemingly unblemished suburban world is turned upside down when her parents (Edie Falco and Martin Donovan) adopt their recently orphaned goddaughter Dot (Camilla Belle). Dot’s arrival delivers a blow to Nina’s idyllic social life and triggers the unraveling of the family’s darkest secrets. Both Nina’s family and friends, including the school hunk Connor (Shawn Ashmore, The X-MEN trilogy), develop an odd fascination with Dot and confide in her their troubling secrets. Dot quietly shoulders the burdens and secrets of those around her, while continuing to hold what is perhaps the biggest secret -- her own. Directed by Jamie Babbit (BUT I’M A CHEERLEADER), THE QUIET is about family secrets, friendship, trust and betrayal. Through Nina’s eyes, Babbit takes us on an emotional rollercoaster ride— through the hilarious and often crude interactions of high schools students and a family where happy faces disguise ugly truths.
