I remember seeing this movie when it was in theaters. I loved it then and still love it to this day. I give it 5 out of 5 stars as I love the thought provoking aspect in it and the moral behind it. It's a movie about a man finding his faith again. M. Night Shyamalan, one of my favorite directors, directed this. I love the emotion that pours from his movies and this one is no different. All the emotions in Signs make his characters easy to relate to as you could see yourself in their shoes. Awesome job M. Night Shyamalan. I hope to work with you one day. :) Bravo to the entire cast, as well, for a great performance. (On a side note: Wasn't Abigail Breslin adorable in this movie!)
Everything happens for a reason. There are no coincidences. Good can be found even in the darkest of situations.
Graham Hess: People break down into two groups. When they experience something lucky, group number one sees it as more than luck, more than coincidence. They see it as a sign, evidence, that there is someone up there, watching out for them. Group number two sees it as just pure luck. Just a happy turn of chance. I'm sure the people in group number two are looking at those fourteen lights in a very suspicious way. For them, the situation is a fifty-fifty. Could be bad, could be good. But deep down, they feel that whatever happens, they're on their own. And that fills them with fear. Yeah, there are those people. But there's a whole lot of people in group number one. When they see those fourteen lights, they're looking at a miracle. And deep down, they feel that whatever's going to happen, there will be someone there to help them. And that fills them with hope. See what you have to ask yourself is what kind of person are you? Are you the kind that sees signs, that sees miracles? Or do you believe that people just get lucky? Or, look at the question this way: Is it possible that there are no coincidences?
Graham Hess: Ahh! I'm insane with anger!
Merrill: There are a lot of things I can take, and some things I can't. But what I can't take is when my older brother, who's everything that I want to be, starts losing faith in things. I saw that look in your eyes last night. I don't ever want to see that look in your eyes again.
