'Midnight Special' opens with reports of the abduction of a young boy. Setting out as an apparent crime thriller the film soon enters the world of religious sects and supernatural forces.
Australia's Joel Edgerton has a prominent role continuing his development as a 'go to' actor in American independent films and Adam Driver shows versatility in a startlingly different persona from his appearances in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' and television's 'Girls'.
Interesting but like most films of this type somewhat unresolved overall.
