Synopsis:

After a doctor is called to visit a crumbling manor, strange things begin to occur.

Never trust doctors. That seems to be the main takeaway from The Little Stranger (Room director Lenny Abrahamson following up that devastatingly emotional journey with a 20th-century England-based tale of a Gothic mansion that may or may not be haunted by a malevolent force), which follows a respected country doctor (Domhnall Gleeson’s second collaboration with the filmmaker) and his complicated relationship with the once flourishing manor known as Hundreds Hall (alongside his childhood fascination and connection to the building) as well as its remaining owners and inhabitants.
