Ghost Movie with a Twist

Apologies for spoilers! I can’t adequately describe the movie without giving away the twist. This is a ghost story about a married woman who believes her school-aged daughter is still alive, but through the events of the film the audience slowly realizes the little girl is a ghost, and only the mother can see her. The family has just moved into a rural country house and we watch as they try to adjust to a new life. There is a question in the story as to whether the mother has a mental illness due to an accident and is perhaps imagining her daughter. It has some genuinely creepy scenes that later make sense when we find out the girl is a ghost (or perhaps a very visceral memory). I think it’s probably about ten-ish years old and has an indie feel, not a big Hollywood production. It’s not “The Uninvited” or “Angel of Mine” which always pop up when I try to search the description.

    1. It’s not “The Others,” although it has a similar mystery in that the viewer is not sure what’s really going on. But thank you!

    1. No, the film I’m trying to find is only a few years old and I’m pretty sure it’s set in the U.S., but you’ve put me in mind of a plot point I’d forgotten: the mom was so traumatized over her daughter’s death that she keeps forgetting that she died, and thinks her daughter is still living in the house. Even when her husband and mother remind her that her daughter is dead, she forgets again because she just can’t accept it.
