Magnolia Pictures will open The Eclipse, an exquisitely crafted supernatural drama from Tony Award-nominated Irish writer/director and playwright Conor McPherson on Friday, March 26th, in five cities across Southern California and in New York City, followed by a nationwide rollout in April. Just to reassure you — this has nothing to do with The Twilight Saga, and we’ve got the stills and trailer to prove it!
Ciarán Hinds (Munich, There Will Be Blood), winner of the Best Actor award at the 2009 Tribeca Film Festival for his performance in The Eclipse, stars opposite High Fidelity‘s Iben Hjejle and Aidan Quinn (soon to be seen in Jonah Hex) in this engrossing story of love, loss, and one man’s need to begin life again.
Michael Farr (Hinds) is a widower living in a misty Irish seaside town who is struggling to adjust to his new role as the sole caretaker of his two children. Still reeling from the death of his wife, he has been plagued by terrifying apparitions. When he volunteers at a local literary festival, he finds himself drawn to Lena Morelle (Hjejle), an empathetic author of supernatural fiction. While Lena tries to help Michael with the mystery of his nightmarish visions, she must contend with problems of her own — she’s being jealously pursued by a self-obsessed novelist (Quinn), her one-time lover. As the three adults’ lives converge, the turbulence of the phantom world will soon have nothing on that of the living.
