The Turning - Official Trailer.
Miss Jessel (Denna Thomsen), the live-in tutor at the Fairchild Estate, flees the house in a panic but is attacked by a ragged man.
Some time later, Kate Mandell (Mackenzie Davis) is leaving her job as a teacher to become a governess for the seven year old Flora Fairchild (Brooklynn Prince) after Miss Jessel's disappearance. Before leaving, she visits her mother, who lives in a mental institution because she suffers from delusions. Upon arriving at the Fairchild Estate, Kate is informed by the caretaker Mrs. Grose (Barbara Marten) that Flora witnessed her parents die in a car accident outside the house's gate and is a "special case." Flora gives Kate a tour of the grounds and confesses that she is afraid Kate will leave her like Miss Jessel did but Kate promises not to.
That night, Kate investigates a disturbance in the East Wing, which Flora refused to show her earlier. There, she encounters Flora's brother Miles (Finn Wolfhard), who is back from boarding school. The next day, Kate receives a call from the school's principal, who informs her that Miles is expelled after having been found strangling another boy. This startles Kate, who only becomes more aggravated with him when he and Flora begin pulling pranks on her. She lashes out at Miles, but later apologizes. Miles suggests he teach her how to ride horses to make it up to her, as their former riding instructor Quint has recently died.
Kate notices strange occurrences happening at night, so she begins to keep her lights on when she goes to sleep. One day she suggests they go into town, to the dismay of both Flora and Mrs. Grose. Flora throws a fit and proceeds to run out of the car after Kate refuses to stop it. Miles warns her to leave but Kate decides to stay due to her promise to Flora.
