The Moth Diaries (2011)

Directed by
Mary Harron

Gothic horror. Sarah Bolger, Sarah Gadon and Lily Cole star in this adaptation of Rachel Klein's novel by director Mary Harron. Following her father's suicide, 16-year-old Rebecca was sent to an all-girl boarding school by her mother. Over time, and with support from her new friends, Rebecca coped with the tragedy. But then a new pupil, the strange, pallid Ernessa, arrives at the school. It's not long before Rebecca's best friend Lucy spends more and more time with the newcomer, becoming alarmingly wan in the process. And when Rebecca's attractive English teacher sets Sheridan Le Fanu's 1870's lesbian vampire novella Carmilla for the class to read, she starts to wonder... could Ernessa's refusal of food, preference for the night-time, and the variety of mishaps befalling those around her mean that she is, in fact, a vampire?
