Here’s the first trailer for Academy Award nominee Lenny Abrahamson‘s followup to Room, The Little Stranger, a period ghost story in theaters August 31, 2018.
The film stars Ex Machina‘s Domhnall Gleeson as Dr. Faraday, the son of a housemaid, who has built a life of quiet respectability as a country doctor. During the long hot summer of 1947, he is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall, where his mother once worked. The Hall has been home to the Ayres family for more than two centuries and is now in decline. But Mrs Ayres (Academy Award nominee Charlotte Rampling) and her two grown children, Caroline (Golden Globe Award winner Ruth Wilson) and Roddy (Will Poulter of The Revenant), are haunted by something more ominous than a dying way of life. When he takes on his new patient, Faraday has no idea how closely, and how terrifyingly, the family’s story is about to become entwined with his own.
