IMDB's summary: "Three girls are kidnapped by a man with a diagnosed 23 distinct personalities, and must try and escape before the apparent emergence of a frightful new 24th."
My summary: man kidnaps two trampy teens & their acquaintance from school - the "weird kid". Come to find out, said man has many personalities & they are fighting for "the light".
My thoughts: it was great! I won't spoil it for anyone because that's not what I'm here to do. What I'm here to do is to tell you to go see it so we can all talk about it together.
James McAvoy is WONDERFUL! I thought he did such a wonderful job especially with Hedwig (the nine year old boy) & Dennis (the Russian weightlifter). Just wonderfully played by him. I think the only other one that could have done it would be Eddie Redmayne. So, I would recommend seeing it just to see his performance.
The story was great, kept me interested but I'm not quite sure how the main girl's backstory fits in. I do understand from the stuff that I read that this is a part of a trilogy so I am really anxious to see what M. Night has up his twisted lil sleeve.
