In 1921, England is overwhelmed by the loss and grief of World War I. Hoax exposer Florence Cathcart visits a boarding school to explain sightings of a child ghost. Everything she believes unravels as the 'missing' begin to show themselves.
Some say that all houses have memories. For one man, his home is the place he would kill to forget. A family unknowingly moves into a home where several grisly murders were committed ... only to find themselves the killer's next target. Successful publisher Will Atenton (Craig) quit a job in New York City to relocate his wife, Libby (Weisz), and two girls to a quaint New England town. But as they settle into their new life, they discover their perfect home was the scene of the murder of a mother and her children. And the entire city believes it was at the hands of the husband who survived. When Will investigates the tragedy, his only lead comes from Ann Paterson (Watts), a neighbour who was close to the family that died. As Will and Ann piece together the disturbing puzzle, they discover that the story of the last man to leave Will's dream house will be just as horrifying to the one who came next.Written by
During the shooting of this film, Daniel Craig (Will Atenton) and Rachel Weisz (Libby) met and started an affair, in which their relationship was publicly announced several months later. They married in a discreet ceremony. When asked about the movie, Craig said, "The movie didn't turn out great. But I met my wife. Fair trade." See more »
At the end of the movie, when Will is being dragged further into the front lawn away from his burning house, Emergency Services asks, him," Is there anybody else in the house?"
Will answers in the negative.
When Emergency Services found the two bodies inside the house, there should have been an investigation which would have ended most likely with Will being incarcerated and not seeing himself on a book standing outside on the sidewalk.
He was already convicted of multiple murders so he would have been found guilty either by pleading or by jury even with the testimony of Ann. See more »
Alright, now I want to show you something I showed you earlier. From five years ago.
[plays back CCTV recording showing a violent, crazed man turning to face the camera]
That's not... Peter Ward. That's... that's me.
You lived in this institution for five years, Peter.
No. Um... that's, that's ridiculous. I... I'm not Peter Ward. I'm Will Atenton.
That's the name you gave yourself. W1-1L becomes Will. The numbers 8-10-10 become Atenton. Will Atenton.

Mystery, suspense, a little romance, and an original plot sure to stun.
This is a sweet, psychotic trip about a dad who was framed and who lives a schizophrenic second reality every time he's in his house, where there was a tragic accident, for which he was framed. It'll break your heart and make you think. This films draws a perfect picture that is heartbreaking and shows the extent of love, justice, and a broken, but beautiful love story.
I loved this movie so much. It was so sweet and exquisite, like gourmet food, in the beginning and then the story folds out as you normally think it would, being a thriller; but there's an unexpected twist that is so freaking brilliant and the every event that follows will make you roll out one tear at a time. It's definitely worth a watch and I've already made plans to re-watch. With a bit of romance, mystery, and definitely suspense, this is one of the best films I've seen in the past twenty years. The casting could not be any better and with a plot that is just as freaking amazing, you have this amazing underrated film.
