(PG-13) ★★★☆☆

The prologue tells us of a father fleeing scandal, grabbing his children and speeding into the mountains. They crash, wind up at a remote cabin, and then something happens to him. Five years later, searchers find the girls, now feral, nonverbal, like rats almost. Their uncle (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) takes them in, but his girlfriend (Jessica Chastain) is reluctant. Naturally, all is not as it seems, thanks to whatever kept them alive in the woods. Chastain and the girls, Megan Charpentier and Isabelle Nélisse, are great. A solid ghost story.

THE ROYAL VISIT: It’s always a delightful social occasion when the Lady Gaga comes to our province to entertain us peasants using the tools of her office: the extraterrestrial drag, the enormous meat grinder, the simulated childbirth and more. Just knowing that we’re going to get a show with this level of refinement and sophistication should make you want to become a better person. Seriously, though: Who else is working on this level these days? David Bowie is retired. GWAR is fun, but if you’ve seen them once, that’s plenty.
