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 that her predecessor died under mysterious circumstances. Later, Anna's discomfort turns to outright fear as unidentifiable figures appear to stalk the estate's scenic grounds. When it begins to appear as if these malevolent apparitions have targeted the children, the devoted nanny does her best to keep the youngsters safe from harm. The dark cloud of Anna's past casting an ominous shadow over the battle for the souls of her two young charges, the stage is set for a supernatural confrontation that will reveal a terrifying truth too horrific for the human mind to even comprehend.
