The Awakening review at Ravenous Monster

The film is anchored by Rebecca Hall’s amazing performance as Florence Cathcart.  Hall creates a layered character than is always strong, yet perpetually vulnerable.  The rest of the supporting cast is strong with other standout performances from Imelda Staunton(Harry Potter’s Professor Umbride) and Dominic West.  The characters are fleshed out people, so that they are not merely elements for the plot to move around.  The film is about more than the mysteries in the building, but the broken souls who inhabit it as they cope with the destruction of The First Great War.  Full review at Ravenous Monster, click either image for the link
