Movie Info

Dutch-Australian director Rolf de Heer's second film is a vision of a quickly dissolving marriage as seen through the eyes of a seven-year-old child. Chloe Ferguson (de Heer's real-life daughter) stars as a nameless little girl who withdraws completely into herself and refuses to speak as the level of animosity between her mother (Celine O'Leary) and father (Paul Blackwell) moves them inexorably closer to divorce. The girl's voice is heard, however, as narration, in which she describes her

The Quiet Room was a little too quiet for me.

Ozus' World Movie Reviews

A profound film about the emotional intelligence of little children and the holy calling of parenthood.

Spirituality and Practice

An exceptional, if not perfect, Australian drama that gets farther into the inner workings of a child's mind than any other film I've ever seen.

Audience Reviews for The Quiet Room

This one is so quiet that I even forgot watching it.

I cried my eyes out. After the movie was over, my parents came into my room and sat on my bed. They asked me why I cried so much during this movie and if it was because I really related to the main character. We had a long family discussion until 3 AM about how they will try not to fight anymore and reassured me that they wouldn't get a divorce. The movie was so good that I rented it a couple times from the library after seeing it. Then, I recently bought it at a video store because I wanted to add it to my collection. It is a good movie to watch and then talk about after with your kids.
