The oldest son swears to protect the three younger siblings, but it becomes very challenging when a menacing presence is discovered in the old house where they reside.
7. Barry (2016)
Director- Vikram Gandhi
Unintentionally, it creates the impression that loneliness and anxiety are more prevalent than they actually are. This is probably a result of the shaky political climate we are in as the real-life Obama prepares to leave office and worry about his legacy. However, “Barry,” helmed by Vikram Gandhi with a sure touch, is thankfully not refracted through the future and is supported by a delightfully understated lead performance by Australian actor Devon Terrell. It’s not about a man who will always succeed. It is more subtly American and subduedly patriotic than any achievement-focused, traditional biography because it is about the yearning for belonging.
8. Glass (2019)
Director- M. Night Shyamalan
The now-grizzled avenger of the innocent, David Dunn, or “The Overseer,” is still searching for the Horde and the elusive kidnapper, Kevin Wendell Crumb, nearly two long decades after the life-changing events in Unbreakable (2000) and the horrifying emergence of the strong “Beast” persona in Split (2016). However, a mysterious new foe has emerged in the form of Dr. Ellie Staple, a determined and silver-tongued psychiatrist, who has made it her goal to persuade David, Kevin, and wheel-bound, brittle-boned inmate Elijah Price that the delusional super-humans are, in reality, merely mortals. With a lethal confrontation coming soon, the stage now appears to be set for the ultimate disclosure.
