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.
