A deaf girl discovers her foster family’s dirty secrets. We used to call movies like this “bad TV” but even bad TV has gotten a lot better than this salacious, predictable and altogether awful movie. Couldn’t take more than half an hour before turning it off. 23% on Rotten Tomatoes.

The Quiet. Jamie Babbit, 2005. *
