This atmospheric coming-of-age tale is inspired by the 1872 Gothic vampire novella by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu. Isolated from the outside world, fifteen-year-old Lara (Hannah Rae) lives in seclusion on a vast country estate with her father and strict governess Miss Fontaine (Jessica Raine). Late one evening, a mysterious carriage crash brings a young girl into their home to recuperate. Lara immediately becomes enchanted by this strange visitor who arouses her curiosity and awakens her burgeoning desires. (96 mins)

“[A] complex, enchanting mystery which draws you in and leaves you obsessing over every last detail.” – Bianca Garner, Filmotomy
“A stunningly beautiful film… the first comparison that comes to mind is Céline Sciamma’s ‘Portrait of a Lady on Fire.’” – Sarah Boslaugh, TheArtsSTL
“It portrays its central relationship as playful, sensual and exciting rather than driven by plain lust and is all the more an affecting tale as a result, while the performances from its young leads are mesmerising in their raw empathy.” – Andrew Marshall, Starburst
