Nothing is scarier than the decline of the aristocracy!

The Little Stranger

A young country doctor (Domhnall Gleeson) visits a crumbling British estate in order to treat the family’s older brother (Will Poulter), suffering from injuries he sustained in World War II. What follows is a series of mysterious and inexplicable events, a haunting of the once-established gentry as they lose their wealth and status.

Based on the 2009 novel by Sarah Waters, The Little Stranger is directed by Lenny Abrahamson (Room, Frank).

The film also costars Ruth Wilson as the family’s daughter, who becomes romantically involved with the visiting doctor, and Charlotte Rampling as the family matriarch who, if you can imagine, is harboring a dark secret.
