“Watch the children with care”

Copyrighted, Universal Pictures

Here’s what the distributor says about their film:The Turning takes us to a mysterious estate in the Maine countryside, where newly appointed nanny Kate is charged with the care of two disturbed orphans, Flora and Miles. Quickly though, she discovers that both the children and the house are harboring dark secrets and things may not be as they appear.

The young governess is hired by a man who has become responsible for his young nephew and niece after the deaths of their parents. The two orphans are convinced that the old country mansion they live in is haunted by a ghost. The young woman finds that the children are not quite what they seem, and that she might be losing them to evil spirits with a secret tie to their past. The story is a modern take on Henry James’ novella The Turn of the Screw.”
