Our Mother's House
A while ago my friend from Unmann-Wittering Blog sent me 3 DVD-Rs worth of rare British TV shows and movies, none of which I had ever heard of. This movie, Our Mother's House, was on one of them, and my wife and I watched it the other night. WOW. Seances, wool scarves and blankets, a plucky eldest child, Pamela Franklin channeling the dead on a creepy rocking chair -- everything you want. Amazing color palette on this thing, lovely grey and brown macs and leather schoolbags. And "Violet Hook" is a good name for a band. Directed by the same guy who did The Innocents. Thanks, Mr. Wittering!
