Charlotte Kirk plays the role of the protagonist Grace Haverstork, while Sean Pertwee is the evil Judge Morrcroft. In the rest of the cast we find Steven Waddington, Joe Anderson, Suzanne Magowan, Sarah Lambie, Ian Whyte and Mark Ryan. “The Reckoning it is as much about women’s empowerment as it is about witch hunts and the great plague of 1665. And of course, when we made the film in 2019 we had no idea that the world was about to be brought to its knees by a modern plague, which adds to the many reasons why this film is so important to today’s audiences,” Kirk added.
