The Awakening had it’s premiere this week at the Toronto Film Festival and the reviews coming in have been pretty solid.
The story takes place in 1921 England and follows Florence Cathcart (Rebecca Hall), a hoax exposer who is asked by a teacher (Dominic West) to visit a secluded boy’s boarding school to investigate supposed sightings of a child ghost. Her rational explanations of such matters are put to the test when things start getting bizarre.
Not the most original concept, but the trailer is well cut and holds a good creep factor throughout, the cinematography looks pretty great, and Jimmy McNulty is in it!
The Awakening will be released in the UK on November 11, there’s no release date yet for the US, but Cohen Media Group recently picked up the film for US distribution.
