“A Quiet Place,” the nearly-silent thriller starring real-life married couple John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, was the number one movie in the country when released on April 6.

Krasinski also co-wrote and directed the film. It raked in $50 million at the box office on opening weekend, exceeding its predicted estimate of $20 million.

The film follows a family trying to survive after an invasion of blind monsters that attack when they hear noise. The family lives in silence, communicating through sign language because even the crunch of a leaf can trigger a violent end. The script has very little dialogue, but the film is full of quiet tension.

The first scene of the movie shows a black screen with white letters titling “Day 64.” The date shows the audience how the survivors are living in this silent life up to this day. The days are updated twice more throughout the movie.

The movie cast is unique not only because of Krasinski and Blunt but also because of Millicent Simmonds, who plays the daughter. Simmonds is a deaf actress who is a deaf character in the movie.
