Silence is calling.
At a castle in 1950s Tuscany, a dutiful young nanny (played by Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke) falls under a dead woman’s spell after taking charge of an obstinately mute young boy, who hasn’t spoken since the death of his mother (Casino Royale‘s Caterina Murino) seven months earlier.
A slice of latter-day Gothic, ghost story Voice from the Stone makes striking use of its beautiful location and autumnal setting, but the supernatural mystery is far too low-key to be genuinely haunting.
