Storyline Heading
Dr. Faraday, the son of a housemaid, has built a life of quiet respectability as a country doctor. During the long hot summer of 1948, he is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall, where his mother once worked. 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.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - While there are some vague hints at the supernatural, this is not the haunted house horror movie that the promotion makes it out to be, but a very slow-moving and talky period Gothic drama. Fans of Domhnall Gleeson and Ruth Wilson should enjoy. While not a horror film, the dark subject matter, unsettling atmosphere, and brief bursts of bloody violence make the film not for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Slant Magazine Full Review
Average The occasional diversions in the narrative that build such delicate and sophisticated tensions between these troubled, doomed characters are ultimately undermined by a film that doesn't trust its audience to sleuth out the ghost. The focus group must have fallen asleep at the wheel.

The Guardian Full Review
Very Good ...fluently made and really well acted, particularly by Ruth Wilson, though maybe a bit too constrained by period-movie prestige to be properly scary. And all the time, the sinister presence in the house grows, like mould on the walls. An elegant, sinister tale of the uncanny, with its own streak of pathos.
