The trailer has premiered for the big screen adaptation of Sarah Waters’ best-selling novel, The Little Stranger.
Directed by Lenny Abrahamson (Room), The Little Stranger is a darkly mysterious drama starring Domhnall Gleeson (Brooklyn) as Dr Faraday, Ruth Wilson (The Affair) as Caroline Ayres, Will Poulter (The Revenant) as Roderick Ayres, and Charlotte Rampling (45 Years) as Mrs Ayres.
The Little Stranger has been adapted for the screen by BAFTA nominee Lucinda Coxon (The Danish Girl).
The synopsis for the film is:
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 is produced by Gail Egan, Andrea Calderwood and Ed Guiney. It is executive produced by Cameron McCracken, Daniel Battsek, Andrew Lowe, Celine Haddad and Tim O’Shea.
