The main library in the film is actually the school library of the Hall Cross Academy. The library building is the oldest building on the Town Centre site, and it was designed by Sir George Gilbert Scott in 1869. See more »
This movie had potential that was utterly squandered. The sound quality was poor, there were places where the dialogue and picture seemed ever so slightly out of sync, and they didn't use the sets to their full potential. Story lines are established and then largely dropped, the acting is spotty in places, and one of the props is simply ludicrous. I'm not going to give spoilers, so I won't go into detail. If you want something atmospheric, watch The Awakening or something similar. This one just doesn't deliver. It fails to follow through on developing characters, history, locations, plot points. You name it, it winds up dropped.
