At any rate, thanks as always to my friends over at Other Worlds Austin for their tireless efforts to bring indie sci-fi to Central Texas. I may not have fallen in love with this particular film, but I appreciated it nonetheless.
"There's a strong tradition of British end-of-the-world stories, like Day of the Triffids and The Day the Earth Caught Fire. However, for her doom-laden film The Quiet Hour, writer/director Stéphanie Joalland found her influence in a more low-key apocalypse: The Birds."
THE QUIET HOUR is set in the aftermath of an alien invasion in which a feisty teenage girl sets out to protect her farm from human scavengers who will stop at nothing in order to survive in a post-apocalyptic world.
