JACKSONVILLE, Fla – "Don't Breathe" (Rated-R)

Thrilling, shocking and full of surprises.

Three thieves break into homes for fast cash but it all falls apart when they pick the house of a wealthy man. Rocky (Jane Levy), Alex (Dylan Minnette), and Money (Daniel Zovatto) want to leave a life of poverty. Though there are many options, like finding a job or going back to school, the trio of thieves plot to rob various homes in the city. Their final theft seems like an easy one because their target is blind (Stephen Lang). However, they find themselves tangled in a web of traps in the dark. "Don't Breathe" is unexpectedly fresh and entertaining with a new perspective on an old theme. This movie is worth a watch!
