Is the movie "Unbreakable" based on a true story?

Answer

The 2000 movie "Unbreakable" is not based on a true story. M. Night Shyamalan wrote "Unbreakable" as a work of fiction, with a framework inspired by superhero origin stories in comic books.

While "Unbreakable" is not a true story, the rare condition that affects Elijah Price — type I osteogenesis imperfecta — is a real disorder. Type I osteogenesis imperfecta is caused by a genetic mutation that causes a patient to have about half of the normal amount of normal type 1 collagen. Symptoms include scoliosis, a blue-gray tint to the whites of the eyes, a triangular face shape and predispositions to bone fractures, joint dislocations and bruising. However, there is no connection between osteogenesis imperfecta and the insanity that this character exhibits in "Unbreakable."
