The Doll's House
Helena is an au pair in Paris, discovering the city and looking after two privileged and beautiful little girls: Sophie and Matilde. But the longer Helena works for the family, the more the attraction between herself and the twins' father grows. Determined to keep her job, Helena fights her feelings, but the girls seem to know and become increasingly manipulative. Anxious and on edge, Helena is disturbed by the twins' doll's house, an exact replica of their family home - and everyone inside it. When the Dolls are put in strange places and odd things start to happen in the house, seemingly beyond anyone's control, Helena is petrified. And the twins watch and wait... A terrifying and bewitching thriller that will haunt you well past the last page.
