The Moth Diaries

de Mary Harron

Synopsis

Adolescence is and always will be a time of emotional confusion, especially if you spend it in a closed environment. That?s the case of Rebecca, a student at an exclusive female boarding house. The young girl expresses her thoughts in a diary, the pages of which are centered on Lucie, her roommate. Their relationship changes drastically with the arrival of a new student, Ernessa, whose friendship with Lucie will soon arouse all sorts of rumors, to the extreme that Rebecca starts to suspect that Ernessa is a vampire. Is there any truth to all this or is Rebecca slipping into insanity. A brilliant update of gothic stories, based on the successful novel by Rachel Klein.
