The UK supernatural horror thriller ‘The Awakening’ starring Rebecca Hall and Dominic West will start with a limited release in USA theaters tomorrow, August 10. Today we have the first teasing clip from the film for you.
Hoax exposer Florence Cathcart visits a boarding school in post World War I England to explain sightings of a child ghost. Everything she believes unravels as the ‘missing’ begin to show themselves.
In 1921 London, Florence Cathcart, author of the popular book “Seeing Through Ghosts,” has devoted her career to exposing claims of the supernatural as nothing but hoaxes. Haunted by the recent death of her fiance, she is approached by Robert Mallory 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.
