The Dawning

1988 PG

Nancy (Rebecca Pidgeon), a naïve Irish schoolgirl, finds a desperate stranger named Cassius (Anthony Hopkins) holed up in her beach hut. Cassius asks her to deliver a message to some associates in Dublin, and soon after, 12 British officers are gunned down. Although the cause and effect is not lost on Nancy, the stranger mesmerizes her, and that could be fatal ... for both of them. Hugh Grant and Trevor Howard co-star.
