Vast of Night was fun ...was okay on the near field screen. Loved the pacing.
TV review: The Silence
Genevieve Barr is mesmerising as a deaf girl who witnesses a murder
There are some good performances: Douglas Henshall as the workaholic cop, Dervla Kirwan as his irritating, busybody florist wife, and Gina McKee as Amelia's well-intentioned but misguided mother. "What did you say?" Amelia asks her in the car, when she doesn't catch something. "Nothing," says her mum, irritably. That must be just about the most infuriating thing, for a deaf person.
But all these actors are eclipsed by Genevieve Barr's mesmerising performance as Amelia. She is understated and natural, totally convincing. And Barr herself is deaf, I'm pleased to say.
I love The Hunt, real shame that it was released at the exact moment Covid hit hard so most people didn't notice it. Super fun action movie that has some political pokes without being political.I don't know if it's been mentioned yet in this thread but I thought The Hunt was pretty good. It's worth watching just for Betty Gilpin's performance.
