We’ve just received the news of Lenny Abrahamson’s next film, who you’ll know best for the impressive Room, is The Little Stranger, which is based on Sarah Waters’ best-selling novel and opens in UK cinemas nationwide on 21 September.

Interestingly Sarah Waters has seen the film and offered up some great praise:

“The moment The Little Stranger finished, I wanted to watch it again. The product of a perfect combination of things – genius direction, a great script, masterly acting, lush cinematography – it’s a complex, poignant, terrifically unsettling film. I couldn’t wish for a better adaptation of the novel.” 

The film stars Domhnall Gleeson as Dr Faraday; Ruth Wilson as Caroline Ayres; Will Poulter as Roderick Ayres; and Oscar nominee Charlotte Rampling as Mrs Ayres, it’s been adapted for the big screen by BAFTA nominee Lucinda Coxon. 

The Little Stranger tells the story of Dr Faraday, the son of a housemaid, who has built a life a country doctor. During the long hot summer of 1948, he is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall, where his mother once worked.  The Hall has been home to the Ayres family for more than two centuries.  But it is now in decline and its inhabitants – mother, son and daughter – are haunted by something more ominous than a dying way of life…

Director of Photography is Ole Birkeland (The Crown), with Costumes by Steven Noble (BAFTA nominee for The Theory of Everything) and Hair and Make-Up by Sian Grigg (Oscar nominee for The Revenant).  Simon Elliott (The Iron Lady and BAFTA TV winner for Bleak House) is Production Designer; Nathan Nugent (Room) Editor; and the Music is by Stephen Rennicks (Room).
