Daniel Radcliffe acquits himself well as a young lawyer in early 20th century England who is still haunted by the death of his wife, in childbirth, four years ago. With a young boy to raise, he is desperate to prove himself to his employer, and takes on a thankless assignment, traveling to a small village and then to an even more remote old mansion outside of town, to go through a dead woman’s voluminous papers.
A wealthy couple (Ciarán Hinds and Janet McTeer) are the only welcoming figures during his lonely vigil—and even they have a sad tale to tell.
This may not be one of the great ghost stories, but it’s pretty good. Compared to most early-2012 releases, it’s a masterpiece.
