About the film:
Popular cheerleader Nina Deer's (Elisha Cuthbert) seemingly unblemished suburban world is turned upside down when her parents (Edie Falco and Martin Donovan) adopt their recently orphaned goddaughter Dot (Camilla Belle). Dot's arrival delivers a blow to Nina's idyllic social life and triggers the unraveling of the family's darkest secrets.

Both Nina's family and friends, including the school hunk Connor (Shawn Ashmore), develop an odd fascination with Dot and confide in her their troubling secrets. Dot quietly shoulders the burdens and secrets of those around her, while continuing to hold what is perhaps the biggest secret -- her own.

Directed by Jamie Babbit, THE QUIET is about family secrets, friendship, trust and betrayal. Through Nina's eyes, Babbit takes us on an emotional rollercoaster rideó through the hilarious and often crude interactions of high schools students and a family where happy faces disguise ugly truths.
