The Movie Binge

The Quiet

The Quiet

Dot (Camilla Bell), a young deaf woman, is sent to live with the Deer family after her widower father passes on. Now living with a lecherous father (Martin Donovan), pill-addicted mother (Edie Falco), and vengeful sister (Elisha Cuthbert), Dot's presence begins to coax out the Deer's dirty secrets.

THE BUZZ: The second film from Jamie Babbit (But I'm a Cheerleader) is also the first film from the production company Burnt Orange, a University of Texas organization designed to let students work alongside pro filmmakers. Totally cool. What's cooler is most advance reviews indicate Babbit has stepped up her game since the wildly uneven Cheerleader didn't live up to its hype back in 1999. Reportedly as broody as it is tongue-in-cheek, look for co-stars Cuthbert and Bell to pack in people of all persuasions as they get their suburban angst out. Watch out for that piano wire, though...
