Director Lenny Abrahamson. Drama//Mystery/ThrillerPrecisely directed, this is a hypnotic, haunting adaptation of Sarah Waters best-selling Gothic novel. The son of a housemaid, Dr. Faraday has built a life of quiet respectability as a country doctor. During the long hot summer of 1948, he is called to Hundreds Hall, long-time home to the Ayres family, where his mother once worked. It is now in decline and its inhabitants are haunted by something more ominous than a dying way of life. Faraday has no idea how closely, and how disturbingly, the familys story is about to become entwined with his own. Spellbinding, sad and spooky this creates an atmosphere of low-level dread more than suspenseful or scary.Starring Ruth Wilson, Domhnall Gleeson, Will Poulter
