Emily Harris


Moody and atmospheric, Carmilla is a coming-of-age love story enveloped in a mystery. Inspired by Sheridan Le Fanu's classic Gothic vampire novella, this is beautifully mounted film from Emily Harris. Sheltered 15-year-old Lara (Hannah Rae) lives with her father and strict governess Miss Fontaine (Jessica Raine), but when a carriage crash brings enigmatic Carmilla (Devrim Lingnau) to recuperate at their house, she provides an outlet for Lara's curiosity and burgeoning sexuality. The pair begin a passionate friendship, but rumours of a supernatural presence drive Miss Fontaine's mistrust of Carmilla.
