He will die if brave Ivy (who is blind) does not breach the borders and find help to save Lucius. Written by Erin Foster

Weird cool concept
3 October 2019 | by UniqueParticleSee all my reviews

I'll start by saying I'm barely a fan of period pieces, I very much like the cast and the red beings though. M. Night Shyamalan is incredible with his craft! Adrien Brody is so good at method acting like on a shocking level and Joaquin Phoenix is always a delight. Not a bad movie at all although I originally saw with my sister Emily not long ago and we said "what the hell" a lot, that was cute!
