Sarah Waters’ ‘The Little Stranger’ Gets a Movie Adaptation


There’s nothing I love more than a period piece with a creepy background. Bill Weasley (Domhnall Gleeson) jokes aside, this film adaptation of Sarah Waters’ incredible novel, The Little Stranger, looks to be a stunning piece. The film stars the aforementioned Gleeson, Ruth Wilson, Will Poulter, and Charlotte Rampling.

Here’s the official synopsis:

THE LITTLE STRANGER tells the story of Dr. Faraday, the son of a housemaid, who has built a life of quiet respectability as 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. When he takes on his new patient, Faraday has no idea how closely, and how disturbingly, the family’s story is about to become entwined with his own.

The Little Stranger comes to theaters this Friday, August 31, 2018.
