“Voice From the Stone” Screencaps

Thursday, May 4, 2017

I had hoped to get the UHD screencaps but I suppose I’ll have to wait until the BluRay is out. If they become available, I’ll replace these.

 

Keep in mind these contains a lot of spoilers about the movie so try to avoid them until you’ve seen the movie. I really enjoyed the movie. It had some real surprises in it and Emilia was wonderful. See it soon if you haven’t already!!

Why it’s ‘even scarier’ to talk Han Solo film than ‘Game of Thrones’

Why it’s ‘even scarier’ to talk Han Solo film than ‘Game of Thrones’

While it’s a pleasure to talk to Emilia Clarke, you just know there are certain things she can’t reveal — like what will happen on the seventh season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” that’s arriving in July, or anything about the plot of the Han Solo movie she is filming for Disney, which is set for a holiday release next year.

 

But she can deftly segue into discussing her career ambitions and the other films she’s in, such as “Voice From the Stone,” an indie she made two years ago that opens Friday.

 

“I first read the script five years ago, and I absolutely fell in love with it,” Clarke says. “I’m a sucker for a good script, because I’m an avid reader.”

 

Set in 1950s Tuscany, the film stars Clarke as a children’s nurse named Verena, who has been hired by Klaus (Marton Csokas), the artist father of a boy, Jakob (Edward Georg Dring), who hasn’t spoken since his mother died some seven months earlier.

 

So she moves in with the family at their eerie centuries-old castle. What the father didn’t tell her was that Jakob believes his mother speaks to him through the stone in the estate’s walls.

 

“I thought it had a Hitchcock-esque, ‘Rebecca’ quality to it that simmered,” Clarke says.

‘Voice from the Stone’ Lives Out a “Hitchcockian Fairy Tale”

‘Voice from the Stone’ Lives Out a “Hitchcockian Fairy Tale”

For those who have seen Me Before You, the beginning of the trailer for Voice from the Stone may seem a little familiar. A young person has undergone a tragedy, and Emilia Clarke‘s character is brought in to help. She’s caring, witty, and charming, and is hoping to bring them back from the brink. But Voices from the Stone is not a love story, it’s a supernatural thriller. At this remote Italian castle, Clarke’s Verena wants to help young Jakob (Edward Dring), whose mother just passed away. He hasn’t spoken since, but swears he hears her voice in the walls. Soon, she does too …

 

Verena also gets into a relationship with Jackob’s father, Klaus (Marton Csokas), which keeps her at the house long after she starts realizing something is very wrong. Check out the creepy trailer below:

 

As badass as Clarke can be in action movies or as the Khaleesi on Game of Thrones, I think she’s really at her best in these smaller dramatic roles. Directed by Eric Howell and based on the novel by Silvio Raffo, the movie (which takes place in the 1950s) was described by Howell to USA Today as a “Hitchcockian fairy tale.” Clarke added that for Verena, the house is “mixed in with all of the loneliness she has felt in her life as a nurse who is always moving from one family to another. It seems that happiness is only a family away.”

Emilia Clarke hears a Voice from the Stone in eerie movie trailer

 

Game of Thrones’ own Daenerys Targaryen, a.k.a. Emilia Clarke, seems to have a thing for playing dedicated caregivers in film adaptations of popular novels. After last year’s tragic romance Me Before You, Clarke is taking on the darker story of Verena, a dedicated 1950s nurse, in the film version of Silvio Raffo’s mystery novel Voice from the Stone.

 

Set in a dark and foreboding villa against the sumptuous backdrop of the Tuscan hills, Voice from the Stone follows Verena as she arrives to tend to a mute boy traumatized by the death of his mother. She soon discovers that the boy is troubled by more than just sorrow for his departed parent — eerie voices come to him, and soon to her, through the walls of the castle. The film promises to be a haunted house tale and a powerful meditation on grief, all in one.

 

Watch the creepy-beautiful trailer for the thriller above.

 

Voice from the Stone will premiere in limited theatrical release on April 28, 2017. It will be available on Video On Demand / Digital HD the same day.
