Twilight


A crime mystery. Harry Ross is a retired private eye called back into service by a friend, cancer-stricken Jack Ames, a movie star whose career -- as well as that of his wife, Catherine -- is behind him. The Ames' well-appointed sunset years are threatened by some blackmail from their past. Pursuing the source of it upends Ross' own past. It also enables him to encounter his former police partner and flame Verna, and fellow dick Raymond Hope, who's managed to retire in a little more style than Ross, who's been reduced to boarding at the Ames'.

Visitor Comments

Shaun Myburg: One would think that with a great cast like this, the film could at least be entertaining... but no. Twilight will do absolutely nothing for the careers of the actors involved. It was slow-paced, dark and sometimes depressingly boring. I'm not sure what audience this was made for, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone looking to see a good film.

Bruce Humphrey: Ditto Shaun Myburg!

Aruana Zeelie: One word: BORING! I fell asleep about 10 minutes into this movie. With a cast like this one would really expect something a bit more uplifting.
