  • Ciarn 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.

  • Critic Reviews
    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..."
    Box Office

    "[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."
    Film Comment

    "A moody little number, THE ECLIPSE makes good on its name by sometimes obscuring its themes and even point..."
    New York Times

    "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."
    Wall Street Journal

    "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."
    Los Angeles Times

    "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..."
    A.V. Club

    "[W]hat holds this little thriller together is Hinds' sorrowful and moving performance as a man haunted in more ways than one." -- Grade: B+
    Entertainment Weekly

    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."
    Chicago Sun-Times
