More distribution news coming out of the Toronto International Film Festival! The new supernatural thriller from Nick Murphy, The Awakening, has been picked up by the Cohen Media Group for a Stateside release.

"Set in post-World War I England in 1921, the film follows a skeptical woman who travels to a countryside boarding school to investigate rumours of an apparent haunting. Just when she thinks she has debunked the ghost theory, she has a chilling spectral encounter which defies all her rational beliefs."

Rebecca Hall (Dorian Gray, Red Riding: In the Year of Our Lord 1974), Dominic West (Hannibal Rising, Punisher: War Zone, Centurion), and Imelda Staunton (Alice in Wonderland) star in the film.
