Film - The Little Stranger


These delusions are contagious. From the director of Room, watch the new trailer for The Little Stranger...

The Little Stranger tells the story of Dr Faraday, the son of a housemaid, who 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.

Directed by Lenny Abrahamson (Room, Frank) from a screenplay by Linda Coxon (The Danish Girl) and based on the novel by Sarah Waters (Fingersmith, The Handmaiden, Tipping the Velvet, The Nightwatch) the film stars Domhnall Gleason, Ruth Wilson, Will Poulter and Charlotte Rampling and hits big screens in the US at the end of August with a UK release date still to be announced.
