Duration: 1 Hour 45 Minutes

(2005) Smartly crafted and suspenseful psychological thriller about a recently separated single mom (Jennifer Connelly) -- locked in an ugly custody battle with her estranged husband -- struggling to keep hold of her fragile sanity and 5-year-old daughter (Ariel Gade) when they move into a dilapidated apartment with a creepy chronic ceiling leak and a dark past. Director Walter Salles' stylish and sophisticated ghost story (a remake of a Japanese horror film) takes a more subtle approach to maintaining its taut-nerve tension, keeping viewers' cold sweat on a slow drip rather than going for cheap jolts with lots of gore or computer generated tricks. Mature thematic elements, recurring menace, some frightening moments, child peril, including a disturbing drowning sequence, a brief implied sexual situation, a single rough term, scattered profane and crude language. (A-III – adults). (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13). Cinemax (cable)
