Young governess Miss Giddens cares for two orphans in an English manor house; their uncle is away in London. At first Flora and Miles seem fine but over time they don't seem like other children their age. Miss Giddens sees ghosts of the former governess, Miss Jessel, and her lover Quint. Or perhaps imagined them. Won the Edgar for Best Motion Picture; nominated for a Palme d'Or at Cannes.
