2017, PG-13, Thriller, James McAvoy, Anya Taylor-Joy, Betty Buckly
Written and directed by M Night Shamalyan who I think actually had a part in this while someone is looking at security footage.
Three girls after a birthday party are ready to go home, waiting for the father to come in the car they are already waiting in while he puts something in the trunk… he’s attacked and the girls are kidnapped.
Kevin (I think that’s the main character’s name, well at least the one whose body the other personalities inhabit. He’s supposed to have 23 personalities but we only see five.
- Hedwig a 9-year-old
- Dennis The one who kidnaps the girls
- Patricia in co-hoots with Dennis
- Barry an artist
- 1 other
all of his personalities know about one another (which I think is supposed to be rare if I remember right) and are known as the Horde
WOW! McAvoy better win an Oscar for this or other awards! He did great as all those different characters. I can only imagine the mental and emotional toll all of those took.
I give M. Knight a comeback award for this one. I think he’s regained the magic he had with the Sixth sense and those. Though I didn’t see any mind-bending aside from the split and the surprise cameo.
Definitely WORTH a watch and at least Nominations for Best film, Director, Actor, Comeback
