If you’re a fan of thrillers and movies set in one day, then the ‘The Desperate Hour‘ looks like it might be the perfect flick for you.
Naomi Watts stars in the film as Amy Carr, a widowed mother trying to restore some normalcy in the lives of her teenage son and young daughter.
Unfortunately, normalcy will have to wait when she receives a terrifying phone call while out on a run. Her son has been taken hostage following a shooting at his school.
Miles away, on foot in the dense forest, Amy desperately races against time to save her son.
I mean, hey… that certainly sounds suspenseful. No doubt this movie should get your heart pumping. The movie was directed by Phillip Noyce, an Australian filmmaker who has directed nearly 20 features in the past 30 years.
Chris Sparling, the writer behind Buried and Greenland, wrote the script, which seems to suggest it will be a solid flick. I very much enjoyed both Buried and Greenland.
The Desperate Hour will hit theaters and on demand February 25, 2022. Check out the trailer below…
