Editors Note
Note Ciarán Hinds (THERE WILL BE BLOOD) stars in this chilling drama that earned him the Best Actor prize at the Tribeca Film Festival. The Belfast-born actor plays a widower who experiences disturbing nightmares. An encounter with two authors (played by Aidan Quinn and Iben Hjejle) brings them all closer to a haunting reality that should be confined to horror novels.
Box Office 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he film remains an effective showcase for both director and cast, particularly the wonderful and always underrated Ciaran Hinds..." 02/23/2010
Film Comment "[I]ts dream-like tonal and narrative unpredictability, interspersed with a few completely jarring horror-film moments, makes for an experience that will, yes, haunt audiences for a long time to come." 03/01/2010
New York Times "A moody little number, THE ECLIPSE makes good on its name by sometimes obscuring its themes and even point..." 03/26/2010
Wall Street Journal "Everyone is haunted by something in Conor McPherson's THE ECLIPSE, a leisurely and quite lovely drama that honors the conventions of gothic ghost stories without the slightest strain of self-irony." 03/26/2010
Los Angeles Times "Irish playwright Conor McPherson's agreeably melancholy, spooky and romantic 'The Eclipse' -- his third film as writer-director -- gets the most out of assorted hauntings." 03/26/2010
A.V. Club "Hinds and Hjejle have terrific chemistry as two lost, lonely souls who find comfort in each other for a brief idyll....It's refreshing to see a film acknowledge that life and love don't end at 50..." 03/25/2010
Entertainment Weekly "[W]hat holds this little thriller together is Hinds' sorrowful and moving performance as a man haunted in more ways than one." -- Grade: B 04/09/2010
Chicago Sun-Times 3 stars out of 4 -- "Aidan Quinn is superb at creating a man with the potential to behave as a monster, but with a certain buried decency." 04/14/2010
