The Moth Diaries is a horror, supernatural thriller starring Sarah Bolger (The Tudors) and Lily Cole (The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus). It is based on the novel by Rachel Klein and is written and directed by Mary Harron (American Psycho). Lily Cole plays the “evil” character and her with brown hair and eyebrows is a little freaky looking. You don’t really get a good feeling for what Lily Cole may actually be, just something bad (until you read the synopsis, which gives it away). Sarah Gadon and Scott Speedman (yum) costar in the film.
“Adolescence is and always will be a time of intense emotional confusion, especially if you spend it in a closed environment. That’s the case with Rebecca, a young girl haunted by her father’s suicide, who is a student at an exclusive female boarding school. She pours her heart out in a diary, much of it focused on Lucy, her beloved roommate. Their relationship changes drastically with the arrival of a mysterious new student, Ernessa. As Lucy abandons her for this new girl, Rebecca becomes consumed with thoughts of jealousy and suspicion — Ernessa is dangerous, evil, a vampire. Is there any truth to all this or is Rebecca slipping into insanity?”
