It’s an expertly handled thriller, tense and well executed with an impressive performance from Watts. I’ll go into more detail in a review soon – and I also hope that Phillip Noyce will join me for an episode of the Movies In Focus podcast.
The Desperate Hour will play select US cinemas, on Digital and On Demand from 25 February 2022.
Check out a new clip titled What’s Your Emergency? below.
Unfolding in real time, The Desperate Hour is a “riveting and pulse pounding” thriller from award-winning director Phillip Noyce. Recently widowed mother Amy Carr (Academy Award®-nominee Naomi Watts) is doing her best to restore normalcy to the lives of her young daughter and teenage son in their small town. As she’s on a jog in the woods, she finds her town thrown into chaos as a shooting takes place at her son’s school. Miles away on foot in the dense forest, Amy desperately races against time to save her son.
