In the 1920s Harry Price, a medium and exposer of fake clairvoyants, is approached on behalf of rising MP Edward Goodwin, whose young wife Grace's odd behaviour causes her to believe that their house is haunted and she is being made to obey the commands of ghosts. Goodwin is sceptical, feeling that Grace's problem is psychological, but he will not have her committed - partly so as not to harm his political career - and asks Harry to move in following mysterious, sinister writing on a floor. Helped by sensible housemaid Sarah and opportunistic journalist Vernon Harry researches the house's history, learning it was previously a workhouse where a young boy, Grace's possible ghost, was murdered. However he also discovers personal secrets from the Goodwins' past, which make Grace susceptible to her alleged visions.Written by

based on a real ghost hunter
According to imdb, the actual Harry Price set out to expose the false mediums, yet also believed that some were actually authentic. Rafe Spall is Harry, brought in to help a woman (Zoe Boyle) found wandering the streets in the early 1900s. He moves in with the Goodwins to study the family, as well as the house. To complicate matters, the man of the house Edward ( Tom Ward) is an MP, and wants to avoid any publicity. As the story unfolds, we find many secrets that need to be told. And the people that don't want them to be told. Harry Price was a real guy, and has a page in wikipedia dot com. Interesting stuff. Fairly interesting story. Check it out. Directed by Alex Pillai. Written by Neil Spring.
