The Falling

As an austere all-girls school falls prey to fits and fainting, British writer-director Carol Morley’s feature thrums with supernatural feverishness, aided by the psychedelic, twitchy editing and British musician Tracy Thorn’s eerily pastoral soundtrack. But this film belongs to its bewitching leads: Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams, and the prodigiously-talented Florence Pugh.
