The Haunting of Bly Manor
TV series, 9 episodes

A ghost story?  Or a love story with ghosts (lots of ghosts)?

The framework is "The Turn of the Screw" by Henry James (which has already been done many times for movies or TV).  But with lots added on.  In one of the extras on the DVD, Mike Flanagan talks about how the series cama about.  It was a sort of "second season" to follow "The Haunting of Hill House".  They had these ideas about ghosts and memory.  Then they looked around for a classic ghost story to serve as the vehicle. 

With Benjamin Evan Aisnsworth as Miles

Flora (Miles' sister) has much more acting to do than Miles.  But we do see one episode with Miles in his boarding school.

Guests appearing  in only one episode:  
Kasen Kelly as Young Miles   

Daxton Gujral as Young Edmund

Also with alum Henry Thomas as Henry Wingrave    
   
To my ears, it seemed he was flawless with the British accent.

Mr. Ainsworth was exceptional in this very spooky gothic ghost story. Henry James would be impressed!
