STAFF PICK: THE INNOCENTS
April 29 only
Andrew’s Staff Pick!
Andrew’s Staff Pick is the psychosexual adaptation of Henry James’ “The Turn of the Screw.” Victorian England, the uncle of orphaned niece Flora and nephew Miles hires Miss Giddens as governess to raise the children at his estate with total independence and authority. Soon after her arrival, Miss Giddens comes to believe that the spirits of the former governess Miss Jessel and valet Peter Quint are possessing the children. Miss Giddens decides to help the children to face and exorcise the spirits.
Inspiring modern works like THE OTHERS & CRIMSON PEAK, this dark and haunting film is a wonderfully dark 1961 gothic masterpiece that shouldn’t be missed.
