Based on the novel by Lisa St. Aubin de Teran, The Bay of Silence is a twisty new thriller from Paula van der Oest, director of the Oscar-nominated film Zus & Zo. Actress Caroline Goodall (The Princess Diaries) makes her debut as a screenwriter. The awesomely named Claes Bang (The Square) plays a man searching for answers after his wife Rosalind (Olga Kurylenko, Quantum of Solace) disappears with their children. Unsurprisingly, there are a lot of things he didn't know about her during their whirlwind romance.
Brian Cox (Succession) co-stars as Rosalind's stepfather. He may be the only one willing to share the secrets he knows about his stepdaughter, but has plenty of secrets of his own.
The mystery should keep viewers riveted, and the European locales will remind us of all the places we're not allowed to visit right now.
The Bay of Silence opens Friday, August 14 in virtual cinemas. That's the great program that allows you to rent the movie for about the cost of a movie ticket, with the proceeds split between the studio and a participating indie theater you want to support. It will also be available for digital rental and VOD from the major platforms.
