The story of Dr. Faraday, the son of a housemaid, who has built a life of quiet respectability as a country doctor. During the long hot summer of 1948, he is called to a patient at Hundreds Hall, where his mother once worked. But it is now in decline and its inhabitants, a mother, son, and daughter, are haunted by something more ominous than a dying way of life. When he takes on his new patient, Faraday has no idea how closely the family's story is about to become entwined with his own.

Beautiful scenery and great acting. As mentioned by others, very slow-moving and strange. I would add pointless, other than a few peripheral insights into the difficulties of resuming life after World War I and the crippling death taxes on large estates.

A strange little movie which you think is a ghost story but the story has no ghosts. Dr Faraday returns to his small town where he grew up to continue his obsession with a certain upper class manor house and it's female occupants. Well acted by all concerned but quite slow moving,dreary and a bit disappointing that the supernatural elements are not really supernatural but according to the director a violent spectral force of oppressive patriarchy emanating from the male characters. More like a creepy bad boyfriend movie than a ghost story.

Interesting albeit disturbing tale of class differences in great Brittain....the imperialist country that gave the world Roman-like oppression and domination, slavery, colonialism, and some pretty decent literature and music....

This film is subtle yet cleverly engaging enough to keep you on the edge of your seat. I guarantee the ending is as unpredictable as it is surprising. Well done.

This is the second time I am letting you know that the graphic for this title is WRONG!
The graphic shows "how to train you dragon 1&2" NOT the CORRECT ONE FOR " The little Stranger". Thank you, Walter Jasiewicz
