As Grace grows frustrated with claims of ghosts and nonsense the housekeepers attempts to calm her questionable concerns.

The Others is a classic film. Suspense filled written, directed and acted, Nicole Kidman did superb, with a great Supporting Cast-including the children.

Alakina Mann and James Bentley did an incredible job! Fionola Flanagan as the housekeeper held the straw of the plot endearing.

This is a great psychological thriller for those who don’t do heavy gore.
