Dear Creatives, I was invited to watch the movie The Silent Thief & review it. The Silent Thief played at the Omaha Film Festival in March & is being presented this April at the Palm Beach International Film Festival, along with the Roma Independent Film Festival.{details at end of post} This movie isn’t going to be for the family, as it is a psychological thriller.

It begins with a young adult grifter who is constantly taking photographs. He finds an ad for a room rental & takes the whole page & goes to meet the family who is renting the room. They are quite trusting & don’t check on his background. At first impressions they like him & take him as a renter.

Brennen {the grifter} works his way into the family dynamic one by one, all the while something seems quite off about him. The father isn’t too sure about Brennen, it was the mother who wanted to take in a renter. When the son comes home from college & it brings out something in Brennen. You never are quite sure what to expect from Brennen. The movie has some very adult themes intertwined throughout. The ending is not expected & I don’t want to spoil it for those who view it. This movie draws out the tension with a push & pull, just enough to have you watching & wanting to see what will happen.


Typically I don’t watch psychological thrillers, but thought given the chance it is good to view something out of my comfort zone. This movie keeps you on edge with enough story to ease the tension creating its own ebb & flow. Two of the actors I have enjoyed in the past are in the film are Frances Fisher and Kurt Fuller.The younger cast members were Toby Hemingway, Cody Longo, Josh Pence & Scout Taylor-Compton.
