David Dunn, an ex-jock security guard with a failing marriage, is the sole survivor of a train derailment. Approached by Elijah Price, a dealer in comic book art who suffers from a rare brittle bone syndrome, Dunn comes to wonder whether Price’s theory that he has superhuman abilities might not hold water.
Great performances, moments and ideas. If it doesn’t provide the tidy ending that made The Sixth Sense a talking-point, that might not be a bad thing. Expect an argument afterwards over the difference between silly and profound.
