Ghost stories and period settings are a classic combination for British cinema. Set in a remote boarding school, The Awakening is such a film, in the tradition of Whistle And I'll Come To You and The Innocents. Respected actress Rebecca Hall plays Florence Cathcart, a ghost-busting skeptic who is summoned to the school by kindly teacher Mr. Mallory to help root out the cause of a 'haunting' that’s terrorising pupils and staff alike. But is it just some boyish mischief? Or something altogether more sinister?

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
