Movie Info

A young nanny makes a terrifying discovery about the children she is charged with caring for in first-time director Donato Rotunno's unsettling take on The Turn of the Screw. When Anna Veigh (Leelee Sobieski) accepted a job watching two angelic orphans at a remote country estate, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to get out of the city and clear her head. Though her initial meeting with Miles and Flora goes remarkably well, Anna's sense of unease slowly begins to build when she discovers

In A Dark Place, while certainly competently directed, acted and shot, is too overstuffed with possible explanations to make any sense.

Leelee Sobieski, the innocent child-turned-teen star who took a break from showbiz to attend Brown University, makes it clear here that she'll have no problem making the transition to more mature roles.

Audience Reviews for In a Dark Place

This movie was really boring and the characters were cardboard. Leelee has been much better than this and I hope she goes on to do something better. The story was slow and really didn't make me care about anything happening on the screen at all. It seemed that this was written to just have a lesbian scene and to see Leelee take around five baths through the course of the flick.

A rather suspensful and mysterious horror film this was. It's nothing new, just the same as many other ghost/haunted horror houses with weird kids movies.
Leelee Sobieski does a rather good job as a lead. This is the second of her roles I've seen so far and she does well enough as supporting (In the name of the king) and as a lead (this movie).
The plot is really confusing and you never get to properly understand the ending. It's one of those movies that just leaves it hanging for you to figure it out on your own. Because of that the ending is annoying, but other than that it's an all right horror movie with a relatively spooky atmosphere.
