The Innocents (15)
During a bright Norwegian summer at a nondescript housing complex, a group of young children become friends while playing in the communal playground. Nine-year-old Ida is delighted when Ben demonstrates his powers of telekinesis. Another girl, Aisha, can read minds. Soon the three of them are honing their supernatural skills, becoming more powerful as their play takes a malevolent turn.
Creepy, atmospheric and with superb performances from the young cast, The Innocents levitates somewhere between the chilling Scandinavian horror of Let the Right One In, and the work of John Wyndham. This is a winning mix of arthouse and genre.
