The first images from Lenny Abrahamson’s post-WWII ghost story The Little Stranger are here. The film is Abrahamson’s first feature since 2015’s Room, for which he received an Oscar nomination as Best Director and earned Brie Larson a Best Actress win.

Domhnall Gleeson (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) plays Dr. Faraday, a country doctor who is called to Hundreds Hall in the summer of 1948 to care for a patient but instead finds himself entwined in the disturbing family drama of the Ayres family led the matriarch Mrs. Ayres (Oscar nominee Charlotte Rampling, 45 Years), her daughter Caroline (Golden Globe winner Ruth Wilson, Showtime’s The Affair) and Caroline’s son Roderick (Detroit‘s Will Poulter). Newcomer Oliver Zetterström, in his film debut, portrays a young Faraday. With Abrahamson’s keen eye for casting, especially youth after Jacob Tremblay’s incredible breakthrough in Room, this could be a performance to watch this year.

The Little Stranger is written by Lucinda Coxon (The Danish Girl) and based on the novel of the same name by Sarah Waters.

Focus Features will release The Little Stranger in the US on August 31st, 2018. Here are the first images (which appeared first at Fandango), poster and trailer (added today).
