A group of families on a tropical holiday discover that the secluded beach where they are staying is somehow causing them to age rapidly – reducing their entire lives into a single day.
Seemingly healthy people suddenly dying from rare afflictions, children rapidly becoming teenagers, adults turning into skeletons in a matter of minutes, “Old” has all of the makings for one of Shyamalan’s signature unsettling thrillers. Based on French-language Swiss graphic novel “Sandcastle,” the film stars Gael García Bernal, Vicky Kreps, Rufus Sewell, Thomasin McKenzie, and more.
Despite hitting theaters on July 23, 2021, while theaters were still struggling amidst rising waves of the pandemic, “Old” accumulated over $90 million at the worldwide box office, including $48.2 million domestically and finally hits streaming services this weekend.
“It’s definitely about our relationship to time and, in my opinion, our dysfunctional relationship to time that we all have,” Shyamalan said of his movie. “Until we’re forced to examine it, whether it’s a pandemic or the factors that are on this situation for these characters, that they’re trapped on this beach and they have to reflect on their relationship to time. You see some characters unable to navigate this and then some characters find peace. Why did they find peace and how did they find peace in the midst of all of this chaos? So there’s this conversation about that, the one that I’m having of myself with time.”
