The AFI FEST Podcast: M. Night Shyamalan, James McAvoy and More on SPLIT
Following the AFI FEST 2016 presented by Audi Special Screening of SPLIT on November 15, director M. Night Shyamalan and actors James McAvoy, Betty Buckley and Anya Taylor-Joy took questions from the audience about the thriller. Listen below.
Here’s the film’s synopsis:
Though Kevin (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey (Anya Taylor-Joy), Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him — as well as everyone around him — as the walls between his compartments shatter apart.
I’ve always enjoyed movies directed by M. Night Shyamalan. He always produces great thrillers. It’s fun to see his 30 seconds in every movie he directs.
I am super excited about this film and equally happy that I was able to hear this podcast!
