Game of Thrones’ own Daenerys Targaryen, a.k.a. Emilia Clarke, seems to have a thing for playing dedicated caregivers in film adaptations of popular novels. After last year’s tragic romance Me Before You, Clarke is taking on the darker story of Verena, a dedicated 1950s nurse, in the film version of Silvio Raffo’s mystery novel Voice from the Stone.
Set in a dark and foreboding villa against the sumptuous backdrop of the Tuscan hills, Voice from the Stone follows Verena as she arrives to tend to a mute boy traumatized by the death of his mother. She soon discovers that the boy is troubled by more than just sorrow for his departed parent — eerie voices come to him, and soon to her, through the walls of the castle. The film promises to be a haunted house tale and a powerful meditation on grief, all in one.
Watch the creepy-beautiful trailer for the thriller above.
Voice from the Stone will premiere in limited theatrical release on April 28, 2017. It will be available on Video On Demand / Digital HD the same day.
