Nancy, the children's new tutor, is appalled by the abuse and determined to find a way to save them - Can these dark secrets of the past help the Caleighs find their son?Written by
Just found this on Amazon Prime. I'd never heard of it before.
For those sensitive to child abuse (and who isn't) there's a big chance for triggering, here.
But for the rest of the story, and the many mysteries that slowly unravel and unfold, it's just marvelous. Wonderfully cast, filmed, and acted. The pace isn't rapid but it's not tediously slow, either. It is definitely one to be binge-watched in a big 3 hour session, but it's only slightly longer than a full-length film so that shouldn't be too difficult.
Did I mention the wonderful cast?
It's not a high-brow think piece, but it is what it is, and for that it's definitely fun. I really enjoyed it. If you sit back and just decide to enjoy an old-style ghost story with romance and danger and sad, sorrowful events (and just a little bit of redemption and joy), you should have a good time.
