Movie Reviews

Intriguing
John D. Cofield | 10/10/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Miss Morison's Ghosts is an adaptation of the story of Charlotte Moberly and Eleanor Jourdain, two English academics from Oxford who, in the summer of 1901, visited Versailles Palace. There they had a strange experience which seemed to involve ghosts. Unlike many people involved with ghostly visitations, these ladies had a great deal to lose and nothing to gain from publicizing their experiences. They did publish their story, however, in the interests of scientific research. As a result their academic reputations suffered.Miss Morison's Ghosts was shown on "Mystery" in the mid 1980s. Since seeing it then I have anxiously awaited a chance to buy it on video. Now the DVD version is well worth the wait. The picture is as sharp as if it had been filmed yesterday, and the scenes in Oxford and Versailles are wonderfully atmospheric.Dame Wendy Hiller and Hannah Gordon are excellent as Misses Morison and Lamont. There are also many supporting actors who were probably not well known in the mid 1980s, but who are quite famous today. And the ghosts at Versailles? A true paranormal adventure, or just a summer's daydream? You'll have to watch and make up your own minds on that!"
An excellent production of a fine story

"For anyone seriously interested in the paranormal, this movie is a must. For anyone who's had an experience and endured humiliation and ridicule, this movie is even more important. The story, based on an actual incident beginning in 1901, is well written and masterfully performed. I've wanted to see a movie of this caliber, regarding the paranormal, my entire adult life. Finding it has been akin to discovering hidden treasure."
A great film on a small budget

"This is a great film. It recreates a cloistered world of academia where women were struggling to be heard.Two academics visit Paris and find themselves transported back to the French Revolution for a short time. They then must struggle to have their voice heard among those who doubt them. The film contains some strong performance and wonderful scenes. The writing is a joy and the performances reinforce each other. I particularly liked the growing strength and confidence of the women as their careers slide and they refuse to forget what they have seen or heard."
Weird but wonderful

"Having just watched Miss Morison's Ghosts for the first time I feel I have to watch it again. Considering it was based on an actual happening, the events recorded were certainly weird. A time slip into the past at Versailles and the ensuing reporting of the happenings all lead to an enthralling film superbly acted by Wendy Hillier and Hannah Gordon. I was especially taken with Miss Gordon's performance especially her final sermon, but what a twist at the end!!! I would thoroughly recommend this film to any who have not yet bought it."
