WHAT'S IT ABOUT

His hope for a normal life is shattered when he meets Abra, a teen who also has the Shining. Together they unwittingly and unwillingly find themselves fighting off a dangerous gang who feed of the Shine of special children to make them immortal.

What did we think

    Doctor Sleep is a masterclass in mixing drama with thriller/horror and injecting a healthy dose of super-satisfying nostalgia. Tension is maintained throughout the 2.5-hour film's three-act structure beautifully, and at the end I felt like I had binged a rich, complex, miniseries. Be aware, there are a few scenes I found hard to watch; not from a gore perspective but from a subject matter perspective. I don't want to spoil too much here because there are twists and turns, suffice to say the performances are all strong, and my heart was beating in my mouth for most of the film.
