Popular cheerleader Nina Deer's (Elisha Cuthbert) world is turned upside down when her parents, Olivia (Edie Falco) and Paul (Martin Donovan) adopt a recently orphaned deaf girl, Dot (Camilla Belle). But in this suburban home, things are not what they seem. Dot's arrival puts a crack in Nina's idyllic social life and her family's dark secrets soon become exposed.
Nina's friends, including the handsome Connor (Shawn Ashmore), develop an odd fascination with the newcomer and confide in her their darkest secrets. Dot quietly shoulders the burdens of those around her, simultaneously hiding her own secrets as well.
Directed by Jamie Babbit (BUT I'M A CHEERLEADER), THE QUIET is an intense story about family secrets, friendship, trust, and betrayal where happy faces disguise ugly truths.
