Down­ton Abbey old gal and Harry Pot­ter se­ries reg­u­lar Mag­gie Smith does what she does best in this som­bre yet in­trigu­ing 1940s pe­riod drama. She stars as a grand­mother car­ing for her teenage grand­son, who finds out her pala­tial fam­ily home holds many fam­ily se­crets and can trans­port him back in time. The grand set­ting, like­able sup­port­ing role per­for­mances and sweep­ing story pro­vide some pleas­ant old-school Bri­tish charm but there is a lack of at­mos­phere and the su­per­nat­u­ral ghostly busi­ness doesn’t prove at all eerie.

Ex­tras: ½ Trailer.
