Synopsis

There's something spooky afoot in a foreboding 19th-century English mansion in this atmospheric, gothic ghost story, adapted from The Turn of the Screw by novelist Henry James. Employed to take care of the two orphans living there, governess Miss Giddens becomes convinced that the house and grounds are haunted. As the initially angelic youngster's behaviour becomes increasingly strange, accompanied by unexplained apparitions, the governess begins to wonder whether events are tied to her predecessor's unfortunate fate. Are vengeful spirits trying to corrupt the children's innocence - or is her fear merely a sign of Miss Giddens' own insanity?

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."
