Starring Lily Cole and based on Rachel Klein’s novel, The Moth Diaries is a modern gothic coming of age story set in a world of obsessive teenage girl friendship.
Rebecca (Sarah Bolger), a young girl haunted by her father’s suicide, begins a new year at an elite girls’ boarding school.
Before long, Rebecca’s close friendship with the popular Lucy (Sarah Gadon) is tested by the arrival of the dark and mysterious Ernessa (Cole).
Lucy quickly falls under Ernessa’s spell and becomes emotionally and physically consumed by their intense friendship.
Hurt and confused, Rebecca develops a crush on her English teacher, Mr. Davies (Scott Speedman), who is teaching a class in Gothic fiction.
As she immerses herself in their assigned reading, the vampire novel Carmilla, Rebecca becomes convinced that Ernessa is a vampire.
Mysterious deaths begin to occur and Rebecca is convinced Ernessa is to blame, but when her warnings are dismissed as the result of obsessive jealousy she decides that she must take drastic action to save herself and those around her.
