The Little Stranger ★★★½

This seems a undeservedly maligned picture to me; it's absolutely stunning to look at, and the cast is thoroughly excellent. There is an inscrutable element to Gleeson's role that can make it difficult to read (and thereby easier to interpret in certain ways), but it left me guessing and pondering throughout. There is a lull in some areas, and one more overtly supernatural scene that felt like too much and out of place, but I believe the finale is quite powerful, even in its ambiguity.
