Split is the new horror/thriller movie by M. Night Shyamalan, the appreciated director of The Sixth Sense, Signs e The Visit, which main star is James McAvoy. Three girls are kidnapped by a man with a diagnosed 23 distinct personalities, and must try and escape before the apparent emergence of a frightful new 24th, known as The Beast. McAvoy is great to play this mentally unstable man but with him very well even recite the three emerging Anya Taylor-Joy, Haley Lu Richardson and Jessica Sula. As always in Shyamalan we are in the presence of a suggestive and intense movie, in which the viewer is constantly in tension for what’s coming. In addition, he led to believe to see something other than how they are actually things and the truth will be submitted in all its strangeness only in the final.
James McAvoy is mainly known as the young Professor Charles Xavier in the 2011 superhero film X-Men: First Class, a role he reprised in X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014) and X-Men: Apocalypse (2016). McAvoy starred in the 2013 crime comedy-drama film Filth for which he won Best Actor in the British Independent Film Awards. In the past he starred the faun Mr. Tumnus, in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005). His performance in Kevin Macdonald’s drama The Last King of Scotland (2006) garnered him several award nominations. He appeared opposite Angelina Jolie as a newly trained assassin in the action thriller Wanted (2008) and in Atonement (2007).
Anya Taylor-Joy’s outstanding performance in The Witch (2015), and the positive reviews it got at the Sundance festival revealed her incredible potential to the world. She then starred as the title character in the sci-fi thriller Morgan (2016), in Endeavour (2014), Viking Quest (2014) and Atlantis (2013).
