The Telegraph says: "Lenny Abrahamson (Room) is responsible for this unsettling film, set in a declining country house after the Second World War. Domhnall Gleeson (Ex Machina, Star Wars: Last Jedi) plays country doctor Faraday, who is called to care for the inhabitants - Charlotte Rampling as the matriarch, Ruth Wilson as her daughter, and Will Poulter as the son physically and psychologically damaged by combat.  Faraday falls in love with the house and the family, but their maladies are beyond his power to cure: they are haunted by a dying way of life, as well as something far more ominous." 

This is an extremely elegant riff on Gothic horror although the emphasis, being from Waters, is more on social comment on class divisions, perhaps, than on horror.  Which is fine by us!

Sun 7 Oct at 18:30 is our Greene Sunday screening.  That's great film at the great price of only £2.50, courtesy of local estate agents Greene & Co.  Tickets can be bought, while they last, through normal Lexi channels, and Greene & Co branches in Kensal Rise and Willesden Green will also be selling tickets.
