Preview, Horror visits a Brit Boarding School Back in the day via “The Little Stranger”

I’ve made my fondness for Ruth Wilson (TV’s “The Affair”) and the omnipresent Domhnall Gleeson all too clear all too often in this space.

Now, they’re paired up in a period piece set “between the wars,” with Charlotte Rampling and Will Poulter (“The Revenant”), a movie that had me at “There’s something EVIL in this place,” and the stiff-upper-lip “Nonsense” in reply.

Based on a Sarah Waters novel.

It’s an Aug. 31 release, which suggests low expectations (limited release, too) and yet, the same window where “The Constant Gardener” opened — the cusp of Awards Season.
