The gorgeous Blunt has starred in a string of films, the most recent being and one that couldn’t be more different — Mary Poppins Returns.
Not surprisingly, A Quiet Place was a hit at the box office, grossing more than $340 million worldwide and receiving plenty of acclaim in the process for its atmosphere, acting, direction — and even sound design.
It’s described as a “smart, wickedly frightening good time”, chosen by both the National Board of Review and American Film Institute as one of the Top 10 Films of 2018.
A Quiet Place received several award nominations, including a Golden Globe Award for Best Original Score, Producers Guild of America Award for Best Theatrical Motion Picture, Writers Guild of America Award for Best Original Screenplay, and Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Supporting Role (which Blunt later won).
The film was also nominated for Best Sound at the 72nd BAFTA Awards as well as for Best Sound Editing at the 91st Academy Awards.
Author Stephen King praised the film in a tweet.
“A Quiet Place is an extraordinary piece of work. Terrific acting, but the main thing is the silence, and how it makes the camera’s eye open wide in a way few movies manage,” he said.
