The Moth Diaries (2012)Return To Genre
At Brangwyn, an elite girls boarding school, Rebecca (Sarah Bolger), a young girl haunted by her father’s suicide, begins her junior year hoping for a fresh start. From the outset, her friendship with sunny, innocent Lucy (Sarah Gadon) is shattered by the arrival of Emessa (Lily Cole), a mysterious, dark and beautiful girl from Europe. As her friendship with Lucy slips away, Rebecca develops a crush on her handsome English professor, Mr. Davies (Scott Speedman), who is teaching a course on supernatural fiction. The supernatural elements in The Moth Diaries are rooted in the real experience of a young girl faced with her emerging sexuality and caught in a web of obsessive friendship, jealousy, and betrayal. Based on the novel by Rachel Klein.
Roiling with jealousy, suicide and latent lesbian urges,The Moth Diaries dances on the border between hallucination and reality without fully committing to either."
