No, it’s not Carrie: British supermodel Lily Cole plays the enigmatic Ernessa in this creepy gothic schoolgirl yarn.
Starring Sarah Bolger, Lily Cole, Sarah Gadon and Scott Speedman, The Moth Diaries is directed by Mary Harron (American Psycho) and tells the story of Rebecca (Bolger), a young girl who, haunted by her father's suicide, enrols in an elite boarding school for girls.
Before long, Rebecca's friendship with the popular Lucy (Gadon) is shattered by the arrival of a dark and mysterious new student named Ernessa (Cole).
Lucy falls under Ernessa's spell and becomes emotionally and physically consumed by her glamorous new friend.
But though Lucy burgeoning crush on her handsome English teacher (Speedman) should be taking up most of her emotional time, Ernessa's presence proves to be unshakeable, and as she's made to study the classic vampire story Carmilla in class, she begins to suspect that life might just be imitating art.
