Shyamalan's 'Glass' is Engaging Almost Until the End

I don’t think anyone will deny that M. Night Shyamalan is a great storyteller. He initially proved that with the release of The Sixth Sense. The symbolism of the color red, the odd scenes that made very little sense until the end of the movie and of course, the amazing twist that nobody saw coming. That incredible twist has almost been the director’s undoing. Since 1999, not one of his other movie’s endings have had the same impact, but he continues to try.

The next “big” faith-based film to get a lot of attention is the upcoming Miracles From Heaven coming to theaters on March 18. The film is based on a true story and the memoir of Christy Beam whose life was nearly shattered when she learned that her 10-year-old daughter Anna has a rare and incurable disease. Instead of retreating backward, Beam forges on serving as her daughter’s advocate and praying for healing.

Miracles From Heaven stars Jennifer Garner, Martin Henderson, Kylie Rogers with Eugenio Derbez and Queen Latifah; a stellar cast for what appears to be a stellar movie. The firm is directed by Patricia Riggen who also directed 2015’s The 33. The screen play (written by Randy Brown) is based on the book of the same name by the real Christy Beam. The film is produced by T.D. Jakes (who also produced Heaven is for Real), Joe Roth and DeVon Franklin.
