This atmospheric and harrowing British drama features an acclaimed performance from Edith Evans as a poverty-stricken elderly woman living alone in a rundown apartment. As she struggles with mental problems that include hearing voices (the whisperers) and the delusions that she's owed an inheritance, her plight only worsens when she must contend with her estranged shiftless husband and criminal son. Nanette Newman and Eric Portman co-star. 106 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
