Director: Lenny Abrahamson



In this mesmerising Gothic mystery Domhnall Gleeson plays Dr. Faraday, a respectable GP who's called to a patient at Hundreds Hall during the long hot summer of 1948. The Hall has been home to the Ayres family for more than two centuries. But it is now in decline and its inhabitants - mother, son and daughter - are haunted by something more ominous than a dying way of life. When he takes on his new patient, Faraday has no idea how closely, and how disturbingly, the family's story is about to become entwined with his own.

Eschewing horror conventions, Lenny Abrahamson (Room, Frank) instead presents a moving meditation on time and memory, crafted with atmospheric elegance.
