The Awakening is a British supernatural thriller filmed mostly in Scotland, directed by Nick Murphy, and featuring Rebecca Hall, Dominic West and Imelda Staunton. Set in 1921, an author and debunker of ghost stories and charlatans is invited to visit a boys boarding school, in the northwest of England near the Scottish boarder, by their teacher after the sightings of a dead child are suspected of being the cause of the death of a current student. This twisty, creepy and atmospheric ghost story is a visual delight and a chilling ghost story plotted like a mystery.
