The Awakening

Actress, Rebecca Hall
...A chilling new film written by Stephen Volk, you say? Yes, please.

Arriving this November (TBC), The Awakening tells the story of scientist, Florence Cathcart, a ghost-debunker who is called to a countryside boarding school to investigate rumours of an apparent haunting, only to find her own beliefs challenged.

Co-written and directed by Nick Murphy, the film's official blurb reads, 'A classic ghost-story in the tradition of MR James.' Boasting an impressive cast that includes among others, Rebecca Hall, Dominic West, Imelda Staunton and Joseph Mawle, this buzz surrounding this new project and its recent premiere at the Toronto Film Festival all sounds very promising indeed.
