The Falling is in cinemas now, and to celebrate we’ve got three copies of the legendary Tracey Thorn’s absorbing soundtrack to give away!
Set in 1969 in a rural British girls’ school, The Falling explores what lies behind a mysterious fainting and twitching outbreak that rapidly spreads amongst the pupils.
At the centre of the epidemic are intense and clever Lydia Lamont (Maisie Williams) and admired and rebellious Abbie Mortimer (Florence Pugh), both sixteen years old. They carve their initials into a majestic English oak tree, which leans over a magical pond, and vow never to lose touch. But Lydia already feels that Abbie is drifting away from her and soon her fears are confirmed.
A gang of committed friends including prefect Susan, who longs to be Abbie, and skeptical Titch who remains unaffected by the fainting, surround Lydia. But none of them can take Abbie’s place. Only her older brother, loner, occult-follower and ley-line believer Kenneth, is able to provide some solace. When the sympathetic young art teacher Miss Charron tries to reach out to Lydia, she herself becomes caught up in the fainting epidemic.
Within the volatile, strange atmosphere of the school and her troubled home-life, Lydia feels driven to discover what is really behind everything that seems wrong. As the fainting escalates Lydia confronts the authority figures around her: her mother, self absorbed home hairdresser Eileen, the unbending and indomitable deputy head Miss Mantel, and the enigmatic and powerful headmistress Miss Alvaro. Eventually Lydia’s actions force old secrets to rise to the surface and she finds herself faced with a truth that she never expected.
