Gothic Horror Movie ‘The Awakening’ Has State Side Release

The Awakening, a gothic style horror film that premiered at last year’s Toronto Film Festival is finally getting a limited state side release.  The movie stars Rebecca Hall (The Town) as an author who has devoted her career to debunking supernatural hoaxes.  She is approached by Dominic West (The Wire), a teacher at an all boys boarding school to investigate the recent death of a student.  The students at the school reported seeing the ghost of a little boy who died on the property when the school was a private residence.   The movie premieres August 17.

Synopsis

Set in London in 1921, Florence Cathcart (REBECCA HALL), author of the popular book “Seeing Through Ghosts,” has devoted her career to exposing the claims of supernatural as nothing but hoaxes. Haunted by the recent death of her fiance, she is approached by Robert Mallory (DOMINIC WEST) to investigate the recent death of a student at the all-boys boarding school where he teaches. When students at the school report sightings of the young boy’s ghost, she decides to take on the case. Initially, the mystery surrounding the ghost appears nothing more than a schoolboy prank, but as Florence continues to investigate events at the school, she begins to believe that her reliance on science may not be enough to explain the strange phenomenon going on around her.
