UNBREAKABLE
2000, Buena Vista Pictures, 106 min, Dir: M. Night Shyamalan

When the Eastrail 177 train from New York to Philadelphia crashes, all on board are killed except for security guard David Dunn (Bruce Willis). At a memorial service to the victims, he gets a cryptic message from Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson), an art gallery owner who believes Dunn may have extraordinary powers. A cult favorite that has spawned two sequels, this mind-bending deconstruction of superhero films co-stars Robin Wright and features a suspenseful James Newton Howard score.


COLD HEAVEN
1992, Park Circus/MGM, 105 min, USA, Dir: Nicolas Roeg

Theresa Russell stars as Marie Davenport, a lapsed Catholic unhappily married to a physician (Mark Harmon). The couple go to Acapulco, where Marie plans to announce she’s leaving for another man - but before she gets the chance, her husband is run over by a speedboat. When Dr. Davenport’s body later disappears from a hospital autopsy slab, the apparent resurrection challenges everything Marie believes. Co-starring James Russo, Talia Shire and Seymour Cassel, this haunting drama will hold viewers in thrall up to its final twist.


GLASS
2019, Universal, 129 min, Dir: M. Night Shyamalan

Writer-director M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his worldwide blockbusters to create this explosive, comic-book thriller. From UNBREAKABLE, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from SPLIT are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast. Following the conclusion of SPLIT, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.
