      Critics Consensus

      This psychological thriller's talented cast is undercut by leaden pacing and a problematic plot.

      jelisije j A deaf girl in the family can actually listen to the dark secrets that her new family has. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member STUPID JUST STUPID DON'T WATCH Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member The incest was too disturbing to get past. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Had potential with some decent actors but the story was boring and predicable. Was trying to be a soft-core porn without any nudity. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member The Quiet is actually a great movie with good acting and a surprisingly clever twist. Camilla Belle and Elisha Cuthbert both put in top notch performances but the standout here is Camilla Belle. It starts out like your average teen thriller set in high school. While Nina is the stuck up popular girl her godsister Dot who just moved in is a loner. It doesn't take long for the suspense to build. Fortuately one of the themes isn't really shown as much because the dad was very creepy. In the end The Quiet is a effective and surprisingly fun teen thriller. I really dug it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member such a disappointing i was excepting a good story line but good to kill some free time Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      J. R. Jones Chicago Reader Laughable psychodrama. Jun 23, 2022 Full Review Hap Erstein Atlanta Journal-Constitution In retrospect, it is Belle who manages to acquit herself best with a role that never quite makes sense, but affords her some expressive, silent sequences. Surely she will find other film work and then quietly drop The Quiet from her biography. Rated: C- Sep 23, 2006 Full Review Marrit Ingman Austin Chronicle Perhaps future generations of film scholars will embrace The Quiet as a B-movie that problematizes the oppressive gaze, but for now, it's a misfire. Rated: 2/5 Sep 16, 2006 Full Review Christine Champagne Out Magazine While The Quiet is overly stylized at times in an attempt to create an ominous mood, the set design and lighting are no more than minor distractions from the rather unsettling tale that unfolds. May 25, 2022 Full Review Trace Thurman Horror Queers Podcast Nothing this salacious should be this boring. Rated: 2.5/5 Dec 30, 2020 Full Review David Lamble Bay Area Reporter The Quiet may be a mess, but it's an exceedingly entertaining one, with a host of fine actors keeping their characters on as tight a leash as a film heading for this particular kind of crash landing allows.
