Midnight Special movie quotes follows the investigation into a little boy with special powers which are sought after by a religious cult. The science fiction drama was written and directed by Jeff Nichols. Midnight Special premiered at the 66th Berlin International Film Festival before opening theatrically on March 18, 2016.
In Midnight Special, Roy (Michael Shannon), his accomplice Lucas (Joel Edgerton) and his ex-wife Sarah (Kirsten Dunst) are on the run with his eight-year-old little boy, Alton (Jaeden Lieberher). Alton has special powers, said to be able to break things with his mind, among other powers, which, if in the wrong hands, could lead to a worldwide catastrophe.
Hot on their trail is not only a religious sect, led by Calvin (Sam Shepard), but also the FBI, including investigator Paul (Adam Driver). With one side looking to Alton as a savior (the religious cult) and the FBI looking at Alton as some kind of dangerous weapon, keeping Alton from these parties, safely with his family and out of a position to use his powers for any harm is quite the struggle for Roy.Midnight Special was just one of several films in theaters in March 2016 along with The Brothers Grimsby, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Eye in the Sky, and Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.
