THE LITTLE STRANGER (12A) – 2018 UK/Ire/Fra 111 min

Director: Lenny Abrahamson
Stars: Domhnall Gleeson, Ruth Wilson, Charlotte Rampling, Will Poulter

Lenny Abrahamson follows the award-winning Room with this well-crafted adaptation of Sarah Waters’ modern gothic novel. In 1947, Doctor Faraday begins to minister to the Ayres family, who are finding it difficult to live at Hundred Hall, their stately home which Faraday remembers from his childhood, but which is now run-down and subject to supernatural disturbances. A subtle mystery, exposing the social upheaval of post-war Britain, well-acted by the cast, especially Ruth Wilson.

Successful author A.A. Milne returns from the trenches shell-shocked and determined to write the great anti-war book. When his socialite wife escapes to London, leaving him and the nanny to look after their son, a bond develops that leads him to create a series of books based on their time together. But the fame that comes at a cost to the whole Milne household in this “unsparing cautionary tale about the poisonous effects of sudden and unwanted stardom” (BBC).
