Set in post-World War I England in 1921, THE AWAKENING follows Florence, (Rebecca Hall - THE TOWN, VICKY CRISTINA BARCELONA), a bright, learned and rational thinker who travels to a countryside boarding school to investigate rumours of an apparent haunting. Just when she thinks she has debunked the ghost theory, she has a chilling spectral encounter which defies all her beliefs...
What a great film. It's so refreshing to see a story line that you haven't seen before and have such well considered script-writing and cinematography.
Too many films take the easy way out and place in a character to explain the plot to the viewers. I love that we get to figure it out ourselves and that we don't know everything immediately. Well done to the cast, crew and director!
This movie wasn't fantastic but it also wasn't awful. Characters could have been developed so much more, there were some scenes that simply were not believable because time was not spent developing the relationships.
If you are after a movie with some ghostly scares this isn't really like that, it's more a drama with just a bit of a ghostly background......think of the movie "The Others" with Nicole Kidman but far less creepy.
Maybe worth renting when it is a bit cheaper, I paid $6.99 which is too much.
