The Woman in Black (2012): Synopsis and quotes
Radcliffe's employer sends him to the Eel Marsh House to peruse legal documents. It's here, where he discovers the spirit of an angry woman who dresses in black.

As it turns out, the woman has lost her in a marsh and his body was never located. She avenges herself by taking the local children.

The Woman in Black is a beautiful film, but it's difficult for those of us with slight hearing loss to hear the deeper voices, especially considering the English affect.
