A dystopian world where there are no women and all living creatures can hear each other’s thoughts in a stream of images, words, and sounds called Noise is what we can find in fantasy, adventure, and science-fiction flick Chaos Walking (2021).
The movie is based on The Knife of Never Letting Go book written by Patrick Ness, and it is part of the Chaos Walking trilogy series of books. The novelist is also the writer of the screenplay together with Christopher Ford, one of the Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) writers. Doug Liman, responsible for The Bourne Identity (2002), Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005), Jumper (2008), and Edge of Tomorrow (2014) directed, with some uncredited reshoots by Fede Álvarez.
In the year 2257 AD, The Men of the New World have been afflicted with the Noise, a condition that means everyone can see and hear their thoughts. The Colonists were caught in a Civil War with the Native Aliens which killed all of the Women, but half of the Men survived. Todd Hewitt lives in PrentissTown with his adoptive Fathers: Ben and Cillian Boyd, the Town’s residents include Aaron, David Prentiss the Town’s Mayor, and his son: Davy. Meanwhile, in Outer Space, A Spaceship appears and has lost contact with the First Colony, so they send a Scout Ship to investigate, but it crashes. One day, while Todd is working, he spots someone stealing and chases after the Thief only to come upon the ruins of the Scout Ship. He goes in town to keep quiet, but the Men hear and see his thoughts about the crash ship; they head to investigate the ruins and sabotage some parts of it but find no survivors. While Todd is alone, he meets Viola who was the only survivor, Todd is shocked to see a girl as he has never seen a Girl before. The Men capture Viola, she is brought into Mayor Prentiss and Davy’s Home where he questions her, and Prentiss then explains to Viola what the Noise is and what has happened in their town. While he goes out to speak to the Men, Davy is told to keep an eye on her, but he unwittingly picks one of Viola’s Gadgets which causes it to shoot Sparks and creates Holes in their Home and Viola escapes. Ben tells Todd about another village called Farbranch and says that Viola will be safe there.
