For the many who were involved in ‘The Eclipse’ which was filmed in Cobh last year, you’ll be glad to know that the film is done and dusted and about to have its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival. Unfortunately Tribeca is in Manhattan, but…I’m sure we’ll see the finished product soon enough!
Here’s a piece about the film, and as knowledge of the plot has been quite vague, it’s nice to have something to go on.
Directed and written by Conor McPherson (Ireland)—World Premiere
Award-winning screenwriter and Tony-nominated playwright McPherson crafts an exquisite atmospheric drama about a widower (Ciarán Hinds, Munich) who sees and hears strange things in his house. His life converges with a beautiful author of supernatural fiction (Iben Hjejle, High Fidelity) and a full-of-himself pop novelist (Aidan Quinn) at an international literary festival that will alter their lives in surprising ways.
‘The Eclipse’ will be screened as part of the World Narrative Feature Competition.
