QUICK TAKE:
Horror/Thriller: Escaping Germany's bombing of London in 1941, two schoolteachers and eight refugee children must also survive an English countryside estate where a vengeful ghost lives.
PLOT:
In 1941, the Nazis launch a series of seemingly never-ending bombing raids over London, causing much death and destruction. Many parents decide to send their children to live in the English countryside, away from the bombardments. Eve (PHOEBE SNOW) is a young schoolteacher charged with caring for eight such children together with another older and stricter colleague, Jean Hogg (HELEN McCRORY).

Eve takes a liking to Edward (OAKLEE PENDERGAST), a young boy whose parents were killed in the latest bombings just prior to their escape from the British capital. He is mute and communicates only by writing notes and drawing pictures, which causes him to be bullied by one classmate, Tom (JUDE WRIGHT), and snitched on by another, Joyce (AMELIA PIDGEON). At the same time, Eve is attracted to a handsome, yet haunted military pilot named Harry (JEREMY IRVINE), who she shares a train ride with out to the country and who is stationed nearby.

Once at the abandoned estate, Eve immediately suspects that she, Jean, and the children are not alone. A vengeful female ghost seems to be stalking them and has taken a particularly strong interest in Edward. She also has recurring visions and nightmares of a traumatic event from when she was a teenager: giving birth to a child out of wedlock and having the baby taken from her. The evil Woman in Black specter seems to know this and uses it against her.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Those who liked the first film might be interested, while other teenagers could have some interest due to the film's PG-13 rating and mostly young cast.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG-13
For disturbing and frightening images, and thematic material.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
