Pick Of The Day: The Eclipse

Not to be confused with the New Moon Twilight saga stuff about vampires and whatnot. Although this movie does have a supernatural theme. It’s a 2009 production from Ireland that sees a widowed teacher (Claran Hinds) raising two young children on his own.

Following his wife’s death, he begins to see and hear strange things in the family home. While volunteering at a literary festival, he meets a writer (Iben Hjejle) who has authored books on ghosts and other supernatural phenomena. In her, he finds a kindred spirit. But she’s simultaneously involved with a famous novelist (Aidan Quinn) who wants to leave his wife to be with her. But she has plenty of misgivings about him.

This combination ghost/love story screens at the RPL Theatre tonight at 7 p.m. Here’s the trailer (YouTube)

  1. Right you are Malcolm. I checked the RPL’s handbill again, and it is Ciaran. Guess I need glasses. Although, in fairness, the printing is pretty tiny.
