This Netflix Original movie I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House is about a nurse Lily (Ruth Wilson) who comes to take care of an old author, Iris Blum, living alone in a remote house. Iris is almost senile and speaks to Lily only referring to her as Polly. Lily finds out that Polly was Iris’s most famous character and she attempts reading one of the books that Iris has written.
The story is simple enough, but I found the movie to be boring and very slow moving. What I absolutely loved was the house itself. The white farmhouse is supposed to be stark and gloomy, but I found it to be filled with charm.
