Long Story Short:
A nurse is hired to take care of the remaining patients of a children’s hospital that is about to be shut down. But someone doesn’t seem to be too happy about them leaving, and so the children experience random attacks by an invisible force only they can see. Who or what trying to hold them in the hospital?

Review:
Fragile is a very nice and atmospheric supernatural thriller, that starts very settle and quiet while building up a nice storyline and suspense. It can be scary at times, but it is mostly intriguing and definitely well- acted and shot. Everyone knew Calista Flockhart as Ally McBeal, and I think I am not the only one who had low expectations of her performance in this movie; however, I was pleasantly surprised. She is very convincing, and brings life to the story. Fragile might only have little shock effects, but it convinces with its very effective music, acting and storyline. There isn’t a huge twist at the end, but I think it is still successful and ties the plot together. Fragile is definitely an underdog that deserves more attention.

Rating: 7/10
