I caught the end of 'Signs' on TV last night, which got me to thinking if there were any other films from this same director (he's also responsible for 'Sixth Sense', 'Unbreakable', 'The Village' etc) that I didn't have, but were available for less than it would cost to rent them from Blockbuster.
This same title appears to be almost double this price elsewhere, so this is somewhat of a bargain I think!
It's not as highly rated as his other films, but is somewhat of a hidden gem according to many of the reviews I've seen. Judging by his previous output, I thought that it was well worth a try at this price.

Kindly caretaker Cleveland Heep (Paul Giamatti, SIDEWAYS) discovers an elfin creature named Story (Bryce Dallas Howard, THE VILLAGE) living in the swimming pool of the apartment complex where he works. It soon becomes apparent to Cleveland that Story is not of this world, and that her mission to deliver a message to mankind is fraught with danger. The stuttering caretaker tries valiantly to protect her so that she may have safe passage back to the Blue World from whence she came. Suspension of disbelief is mandatory in this beautifully realised modern day fable, directed by master of suspense M. Night Shyamalan, who puts his own unique spin on the conventions of the traditional fairy tale.
