In the 1960s, a group of friends at an all girls school learn that their school is going to be combined with a nearby all boys school. They concoct a plan to save their school while dealing with everyday problems along the way.
A mythic memory play in the vein of The Wicker Man, Deeply is the story of a traumatized teenager, Claire McKay, who is brought to the Island of her ancestors in the hopes of she will recover from the sudden death of her first love. Claire encounters an eccentric writer, Celia, who tells her the story of another grief-stricken teenager, Silly, and the curse which has haunted the Island since the days of the Vikings. As Celia recounts the story of Silly and her great loss, a story that is yet without an ending, Claire relives her own trauma and undergoes a catharsis which sets her spirit free, healed of the grief and horror. As Celia said, a good story does indeed have the power to heal. But the ending to Celia's story has still to be written...Written by

I just watched this movie this morning, and while it wasn't a complete waste of my time, I do feel like I have lost a few braincells. I cannot figure out for the life of me, what kind of accent Kirsten Dunst is trying to use. Irish? Scottish? To me it came off as a southern bell with a cold...which did not fit in with any part of the film. Another problem with the movie...some of the characters have no basis for being in the film anyway...Pete for example...what exactly is his motive for helping James...is he in love with Silly too? All I know is, Dunst can do better, and Lynn Redgrave being such a good actress, should not stoop to such a low level with this film.
