Storyline

After the death of her father when she was a child, Kit Gordy has grown up as a troubled teen for disgust of her mother Ginny and her stepfather Dave Dabrowski. Called to the principal's office of her high school and accused of a failed attempt to burn it, Kit is expelled from the high school, but Dr. Heather Sinclair, member of the staff of the Blackwood Boarding School, appears to offer her a place in the next school year. Ginny enlists Kit against her will in a try to correct her daughter, and Kit travels Blackwood, an old, isolated and dark mansion in the middle of a forest outside the city. There she meets her companions: nice Izzy, shy Ashley, reluctant Sierra and borderline Veronica, so troubled teens as her own. In the dinner presentation, Kit and the other girls meet Madame Duret, Blackwood's headmistress, and the rest of the staff: Pr. Farley (maths), Jules Duret (music), Heather Sinclair (arts) and Mrs. Olonsky, Madame Duret's rude right-hand to keep the peace in Blackwood.... Written by Chockys

So elegant and beautiful
6 August 2018 | by fabiohidalgo1975See all my reviews

I didn't expect this film to be any good, I hate TWILIGHT and, to be frank, most teen movies. I find them plain and full of dumb characters, and pop songs seem to be enough to try to make the audiences feel interested on the screen. But wow, this film is something. It's elegant, it has class, it builds tension with almost only light and sound. The music is beautiful too, and the young actresses are amazing, especially AnnaSophia Robb, who's never been this good. Uma Thurman is as subtle as a villain as she's powerful too, dangerous and intelligent, a true manipulator. BLACKWOOD made me think, for some reason, in movies like WALKABOUT and in films by Aronofsky. I wish there were more of these movies today that still respect film making and their audiences. I'm not that young anymore, I actually have just been father, but the ending almost made me cry, for a number of reasons. This film shouldn't have been good. But it certainly is.
