The Little Stranger Rated 12A

The Little Stranger

Dir. Lenny Abrahamson. UK/Ireland, 2018. Starring Domhnall Gleeson, Ruth Wilson, Will Poulter, Charlotte Rampling, Kate Phillips, Anna Madeley.

During a long hot summer in 1948, a countryside doctor is called to treat a patient at the hall where his mother once worked. On arrival, he finds the grounds in disrepair and its inhabitants haunted by the estate’s dark past. A spellbinding country-house chiller from the director of Oscar-winning drama Room.

‘Beautifully directed by Lenny Abrahamson, the film evokes this period in a way that is both nostalgic and frequently chilling.’ ★★★★ Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent

'Abrahamson has taken [Waters'] idea and run with it. He's made a movie that's a Brexit Britain parable about the intoxicating, if futile, allure of national identity.’ ★★★★ Kevin Maher, The Times
