Give it a go!,
This review is from: Half Light [DVD] (DVD)
I have to admit that I was originally put off from this film by some of the negative review I have read, but it was a pleasant surprise! Demi Moore is not the best actress and this film is not an oscar winner for her, but yet it is definitally worth a look.
To sum up,writer Rachel's (Demi) son dies in a tragic accident so she decides to move to a secluded cottage in the scottish highlands to finish writing her latest book. Once there, she embarks on a love affair with the light house keeper, but all is not as it seems. Added to that are strange goings- on that lead Demi to question her sanity.
The acting is not always great. Demi's is okay as is her lighthouse lover's, but her best friend and husband's is appalling. Still, don't let that put you off as this is a genuinely good film with an excellent plot twist. I won't spoil it for you, suffice to say you won;t see it coming!
Not only is the storyline good, but the beautiful scenary and atmospheric music really do make it a better then average movie. It cerainly makes a change from the vile hostel/hills have eyes slasher flicks that are so often inflicted on us!
