Picture shows: REBECCA HALL as Florence Cathcart
(c) Studio Canal/BBC 2011
THE AWAKENING is set in 1921, in a post-war world of loss where the bereaved seek solace in spiritualism. Haunted by the death of her fiance, Florence Cathcart (REBECCA HALL) spends her time debunking supernatural claims, using methodical and rational explanations to disprove the notion that the dead can still haunt us. So she feels compelled to accept a request to go to Rookford, a boarding school in the countryside where a boy has recently been found dead and rumours about a ghostly boy hunting the school are causing panic amongst pupils and parents alike.
