What a bore. A ridiculously pompous, twee pile of crap. M night is a world saving author blah blah. Watched it for WHM. Maybe more later but too exhausted thinking about why I hate this movie to write it out. I gave this a heart bump because of my love of Bryce Dallas Howard and Big G.

I didn't remember very much from this one, just some parts.
This is a story about finding the purpose of each one in life and what the film tries to pass through is the strenght of a comunity if every single one of the members were commited to one goal.
Stories that pass through ages from mouth to mouth or fairy tales sometimes are important, specially if you are a child. So I felt a little bit of a child trying to discover what would be the mystery behind the mystique of the story and I guess that was what Shyamalan wanted us to feel when he wrote that story.
I think Paul Giamatti is a great actor and I enjoyed watching him in this. Bryce Dallas Howard was good too and M. Night Shyamalan has a very significant character in this, very moving.
The score was very good like it's usual on any other Shyamalan film.
Overall it was enjoyable. Not great not bad, just okay.
