Movie Discussion – Unbreakable

Summary:

Here and here

The Questions:

Level One (Observation)

What was your favorite part of the movie? An event, cool camera effect, or anything you liked?

What kind of problems does the David have? How does he deal with them?

Level Two (Abstraction)

What do you think the theme of the film is? (to quote M. Night – “in this film it’s about finding your place in the world.”)

What do you make of the relationship between David (Bruce Willis) and Jeremy (his son) compared to that of David and Elijah (Samuel Jackson)?

What do you make of this quotation coming from Elijah: “It’s hard for many people to believe that there are extraordinary things inside themselves, as well as others. I hope you can keep an open mind.”?

Level Three (Personalization)

How does David choose who to go after in the train station?  Is it Severity or is there some sort of moral compass?

What makes people in the movie who they are? Are they defined by their opposites, their abilities, their past or something else?
