The Awakening

This is a British film about ghostbusting, set in the 1920’s.

The story is nothing new, but has a few nice twists, turns, and surprises. The acting though is superbness, as is the photography which is stunning, especially the outdoor shots in the beautiful British countryside. The colours were great too. In some scenes you could not tell if it was in black and white, or in muted colour, which looked great. You could easily take a screenshot of pretty much any scene, make it into a large print, hang it on the wall, and you would have an awfully nice looking wall.

Dominic West from The Wire is in this, in which he was fabbers, and just as much so in this.

Being British, and not Hollywood, this moves along at a slower pace, and does not have any cheap poop-your-pants moments. Just watching it for the acting and photography is reason enough.
