In anticipation of its upcoming sequel Glass, The Frida Cinema offers you another opportunity to experience M. Night Shyamalan’s creepy 2016 thriller Split on the big screen!
James McAvoy turns in an astonishing, award-winning performance as a young man struggling with dissociative identity disorder (formerly known as multiple personality disorder) with the support of his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley). When his willful and observant personality Casey kidnaps three teenage girls, the rest of the personalities argue and scheme as to how to best handle the situation – particularly as a particularly terrifying personality, driven to dominate all the others, begins to emerge.
A disturbingly compelling thriller, Split packs quite a surprise in its final moments – see it before you see Glass!
