The Shining

A couple and their son become caretakers in a very large hotel during the winter. Danny (their son) is often found playing on his own, or is he? It's very cold and snow is falling (as it does), covers the ground and surrounds the hotel. A lonely, eerie setting for the movie. Jack is a writer and gets quite upset when he can't get on with his novel. A brilliant performance from Jack Nicholson coping (or not) through the festive season. Full of scary scenes.
