“Room” and “Frank” director Lenny Abrahamson returns with a new tale set in a classic genre – the supernatural gothic chiller “The Little Stranger”.
Domhnall Gleeson stars as a country doctor in 1947 UK when he is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall, a large estate where his mother once worked. The matriarch and her two remaining grown children are now living with something more ominous than a dying way of life.
Ruth Wilson, Will Poulter and Charlotte Rampling co-star in the film based on Sarah Waters’ acclaimed 2009 novel. Focus Features will open the film on August 31st.
