Led by British talent Lily Cole (Snow White and the Huntsman, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus), 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 (LILY COLE). Lucy quickly falls under the glamorous 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.
