Nicole Kidman plays Grace, the mother of two children who are suffering from a disease that leaves them vulnerable to the effects of light on their bodies. To keep her children from harm, Grace keeps her spacious mansion completely shuttered and curtained leaving the interior eerily gloomy. When the film opens, we learn that Graceís servants left her employ a week prior. This prompts the arrival of three replacement staff, who come to Graceís door in response to an ad she had placed. It is not long after their arrival that we start to find that things are not what they should be.
The cast is excellent, and the acting offered up by everyone involved is good, but Alakina Mann and James Bentley who play Ann and Nicholas, Graceís children, are especially impressive given their ages.
It is difficult to review this movie without giving away the plotís central theme or the surprise ending, but if you are a fan of the suspense or horror genre, donít miss it!
