Director: Eric D. Howell
Cast: Emilia Clarke, Edward Dring, Martin Csokas
A Gothic setting. A child who refuses to speak. A hired nurse hired to take care of the child. A disconnected father. A dead mother. A voice from the stone. Strange dreams. Supernatural phenomena. All these seem to be a complete ingredient for a horror film. But I was wrong. While the movie has the feel of a horror film, it's not necessarily a horror film. More of mystery. All the characters have their own kind of sadness and longing, which are important forces for the flow of this slow burning narrative.
