Having a deaf daughter saves an entire family in an alien invasion. Who knew?

Is the girl from A Quiet Place deaf in real life? In a word, yes. The girl, aptly played by Millicent Simmonds, is deaf and speaks American Sign Language. And she’ll definitely be in the follow-up film, but presumably older, wiser, and quieter.

Representing Disability in A Quiet Place

Actor-director John Krasinski pushed hard to have a real hard-of-hearing/deaf actress represent the deaf community. Judging by Simmonds actions and reactions in the film’s narrative, it was a superb choice.

I think it’s very difficult to make this kind of sensory difference come out right, so I had to wonder — is this actress truly deaf? A stand-out scene that sent frantic chills down my spine had Simmond’s deaf daughter Regan alone in the cornfields. Indeed, Regan’s quiet as a mouse, unaware one of the deadly but blind creatures was behind her, just…listening.

Simmonds hit all the right notes and I hope she did her community proud. She’s not the first deaf actress to star in a big feature film, but this one is less about in-your-face deafness and more about using it as an unexpected tool of survival.

Great Quiet Place casting gives this sequel hope

If you were one of the many movie fans pleasantly surprised by 2018’s sleeper hit A Quiet Place, you’re probably excited to catch the 2020 A Quiet Place II sequel. The original offered the right combination of refreshing cleverness, a terrifying plot that DOESN’T explain everything by the end, and ambitious hints of world-building… It’s a compelling work by the handful of speaking roles actors in the film.

Emily Blunt, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe (most recently appearing as Peter Miles in 2019’s wonderful Ford v Ferrari)…and John Krasinski himself round out a small but tightly scripted cast in this truly brilliant ensemble — then copied wholesale in Sandra Bullock’s slightly-less-stellar but still worthwhile futuristic horror-lite Bird Box. But can The Quiet Place follow-up be as good?

With great writing and a talented cast, all things are possible. I have hope. I’ll be at A Quiet Place II opening night…in shoes that don’t squeak, buying no snacks that can rustle. Seriously, someone in my theater jiggled a candy bag once and I thought they were going to get lynched. 😉

Best app ever!

RunPee is the only app we use before movies and afterward. not only does RunPee tell you when it’s a good time to leave the theater, kids these days ask if there’s anything during/after the credits, and RunPee lets parents know when there might be some thing that a kid might miss!

RunPee has tidbits, ratings, leave the theater times, and lengths. This is THE VITAL APP for watching any movie!

We used it when my wife was pregnant, and we have recommended it to every pregnant gal we know! How else can you enjoy a movie when you have to go out so often?!

    LOL, so true. We should run a PSA that no one should bring “loud” snacks to Quiet Place II. 🙂

  2. Ha!! Not a bad idea. Get ready for it. How to be quiet in a quiet place? How not to get killed watching quiet place 2?
