Dir: Lenny Abrahamson | Ireland/UK/France | 2018 | 111 mins
Cast: Domhnall Gleeson, Ruth Wilson, Will Poulter, Charlotte Rampling
Oscar-nominated director Lenny Abrahamson follows up his triumphant Room with this eloquent, chilling gothic horror adapting Sarah Waters’ bestselling historical novel. Dr. Faraday (Domnhall Gleeson) has built a life of quiet respectability as a country doctor. During the long hot summer of 1948, he’s called to a patient at Hundreds Hall; home to the Ayres family for over two centuries, it’s where his mother once worked as a housemaid. But, now in decline, its inhabitants – mother (Charlotte Rampling), son (Will Poulter) and daughter (Ruth Wilson) – have found themselves haunted by something more ominous than a dying way of life.
“Sarah Waters’ novel is brought to deliciously sinister life by Lenny Abrahamson” ★★★★ The Guardian
