We Have Always Lived in the Castle
- 1h 36min
- Directed by: Stacie Passon
- Cast: Taissa Farmiga, Alexandra Daddario, Crispin Glover, Sebastian Stan
Merricat (Farmiga) lives with her family, sister Constance (Daddario) and uncle Julian (Glover) in the crumbling Blackwood mansion; then brutish cousin Charles (Stan) arrives. Visually austere but intensely involving adaptation of Shirley Jackson’s final novel, with standout performances from Farmiga and Daddario; complex, personal and highly commendable.
