IFTA Academy Members VIEWING SEASON Screening -

When: Wednesday 13th December
Venue: Odeon Point Village, Dublin

1920, rural Ireland. Anglo Irish twins Rachel and Edward share a strange existence in their crumbling family estate. Each night, the property becomes the domain of a sinister presence which enforces three rules upon the twins: they must be in bed by midnight; they may not permit an outsider past the threshold; if one attempts to escape, the life of the other is placed in jeopardy. When troubled war veteran Sean returns to the nearby village, he is immediately drawn to the mysterious Rachel, who in turn begins to break the rules set out by The Lodgers. The consequences pull Rachel into a deadly confrontation with her brother - and with the curse that haunts them.

The Lodgers screened as part of the official selection for the Contemporary World Cinema category at the Toronto International Film Festival. This was the film's world premiere.
