An exploration of the living and the dead.
Through hauntingly beautiful cinematography and classic storytelling, writer-director Paul Spurrier delivers a masterpiece of good and evil, the weak and the strong. The surrounding forest of a village in rural Thailand houses an evil spirit. The school in the village houses a mute girl. Chased by bullies, the girl finds refuge in the forest. Despite the warnings of her teacher, she embraces the forest and revels in the friendship she discovers with a young, wild boy. But from where did this boy come? Are the rumors about the forest true? Dark and intense, The Forest is a thoughtful exploration of life and redemption. - Amelia Masters
