Film Corner: A Quiet Place

Did anyone else see A Quiet Place this weekend? I've been excited to see it since I first saw the teaser trailer, so I wanted to go ASAP before I accidentally encountered a bunch of spoilers online.

I liked it very much! And I took away a feminist message from it, even though I don't think one was intended, lol, which I won't share on the main page, because it would necessitate spoilers. I will, however, share it in comments, where there will be SO MANY SPOILERS, so consider yourselves warned before diving into the discussion if you haven't seen it yet.

I'm especially curious to hear from deaf Shakers what you thought of the character of Regan, who was played by deaf actress Millicent Simmonds. It's shouldn't even be notable, no less noble, that John Krasinski cast a deaf actress to play a deaf character, but of course it is, because everything is (usually!) terrible.
