Even though the film is more than 20 years old, it remains a must-watch enduring drama with relatable characters.
A Quiet Place
John Krasinski directed and starred in A Quiet Place and proved that he is a master storyteller. The movie follows a family struggling with grief as they try to survive a post-apocalyptic dystopia. The family is tracked by monsters who hunt based on sound, so they must live in silence. The emotional tensions will have you on the edge of your seat.
The movie chronicles the infamous finger skater Tonya Harding (Margot Robbie), who vehemently believes that life just didn’t treat her fairly. While Tonya isn’t all that likable, we do get to see into her past and witness the abuses she suffered at the hands of her mother and husband to gain a better understanding of her. I, Tonya’s tone and humor make this film a must-watch.
