After being acquired out of last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, Cohen Media Group will release Nick Murphy’s incredibly weak The Awakening (review), starring Rebecca Hall, Dominic West and Imelda Staunton, on August 10.
In the film, “Haunted by the death of her fiancé, Florence Cathcart is on a mission to expose all séances as exploitative shams. However, when she is called to a boys’ boarding school to investigate a case of the uncanny, she is gradually forced to confront her skepticism in the most terrifying way, shaking her scientific convictions and her sense of self to the very core. Haunting and moving in equal measure, The Awakening is a sophisticated psychological/supernatural thriller in the tradition of The Others and The Orphanage, but with its own unique and thrilling twist.”
Check out the trailer inside.
