Trivia

The mummers' plays referred to by Alice and Miss Callahan are old folk plays performed by travelling groups of players called mummers or guisers. They were often performed in the street or in taverns/ public houses. See more »

Goofs

The photograph Amy finds in the drawer is seen in close-up to be a portrait of Irena. In long shots, however, it looks more like a wedding picture with one person in white and another in black standing side-by-side. See more »

Reminds one of a Walter de la Mare story.
17 June 2004 | by See all my reviews



Though its story is set in America, and there is no actual, known connection between its screenwriters and British literature, this marvelously moody film, nonetheless, manages to unconsciously evoke the evanescent aura of celebrated English author Walter de la Mare.

Mr. De la Mare is famous for stories detailing sinister encounters between old ladies and children. Among these are "Seaton's Aunt", "Miss Duveen" and "Miss Jemima".

However, in its mysterious and eerie depictions of Amy visiting the reclusive Mrs. Farren, in all her shadowed and moth balled Victorian splendor, this movie comes closest in feeling to De la Mare's "Alice's Godmother."

In any case, a distinguished and lovely film.
