WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Three teenage girls (Taylor-Joy, Sula and Richardson) are kidnapped and held captive in an unknown location by Kevin (McAvoy), a man with dissociative identity disorder, meaning he has multiple split personalities. As the girls try to escape, they are confronted by Kevin’s 23 different personas, including a young boy and a sophisticated woman, but are warned about a far more dangerous 24th persona, known as “The Beast”…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

James McAvoy acts his little heart out as 23 very different people in M. Night Shyamalan’s latest thriller, which after the surprising The Visit could mark his official return to making actual good movies.
