A Quiet Place

This week we expected to discuss Ghostland by Pascal Laugier to continue April-Laugier month. However, we couldn’t find a single screening of the film in the Denver area. So instead we discuss A Quiet Place. This film has proven to be very popular for both audiences and critics. We went in curious and cautious.

We will return with discussion of more of Laugier’s films as soon as we can.


A Quiet Place
