Sooner or later they will find you.
On the secluded isle of Jersey in the final days of World War II, a young woman waits for her beloved husband to return from the front. Grace (Nicole Kidman) has been raising her two young children, Anne (Alakina Mann) and Nicholas (James Bentley), alone in a beautiful, cavernous, Victorian mansion, the one place she believes them to be safe.
But they are not safe. Not anymore.
When three new servants arrive to replace the ones that inexplicably disappeared, startling, supernatural events begin to unfold. Anne reveals she has been communicating with unexplained apparitions. At first, Grace is reluctant to believe in her children's frightening sightings, but soon, she too begins to sense that intruders are at large.
Who are these numinous trespassers? And what do they want from Grace's family? In order to discover the truth, Grace must abandon all of her fears and beliefs and enter the otherworldly heart of the supernatural.

Theatrical reportI couldn't watch The others all the way through. I must be the first person who wanted to see it in the cinemas, and then when I got to see it on video I kept falling asleep. It was not meant to be.
Not a good movie for me, although my flatmates tell me that it was great: they didn't pick the ending until it was very near. I cannot give a full opinion on this movie, because I haven't seen it all the way through but with just the final 20 minutes unseen I still has to rate this film as one of Nicki's bad ones.
