The Awakening

More fun ghost goings on in the BBC production THE AWAKENING. Another TIFF 11 special and one I'm excited to see.

This film reminds me of THE DEVIL'S BACKBONE. A lot, actually.

A female ghost hunter (interesting twist) goes in search of ghost to debunk them, but a boys school might have her believing in ghosts by the time she's through. 

The film stars Rebecca Hall (Vicky Cristina Barcelona), Dominic West (The Wire) and Imelda Staunton (Harry Potter), so there should be some fine acting to carry the story forward, but I hear that there might be a "standard course" set in the storytelling, so ghost movie fans might be able to see the end coming. The gothic gloom has me wanting to see it at once.
