There are no clues, no motives, no suspects. And what the only eyewitness knows may never be told. He’s an autistic child, a nine-year-old whose memories of the brutal slaying of his parents are sealed inside him – unless a determined and caring child psychologist can unlock them.

Richard Dreyfuss is psychologist, Jake Rainer in Silent Fall, a gripping adult mystery powered by a top-notch cast (Jeff Craig, Sixty Second Preview) and bracingly directed by Bruce Beresford (Double Jeopardy). Linda Hamilton, John Lithgow, Liv Tyler and J.T. Walsh join Dreyfuss in this edgy whodunit that twists, turns, jolts and surprises from its harrowing set-up to its nerve-jangling climax.
