HALF LIGHT (a title with a lot of meaning revealed only at the conclusion of the film!) is a fine, atmospheric, well-acted little drama that explores belief in the beyond and its impact of post-traumatic responses to death. Written and directed by Craig Rosenberg (Hotel de Love) the story challenges the viewer to enter the strange world of afterlife and consider the fine differences between illusion and credibility. Rachel Carson (Demi Moore in a fine performance) is a successful writer living in London with her disillusioned editor husband Brian (Henry Ian Cusick) and her young son Thomas (Beans El-Balawi). In a freak accident Thomas drowns and Rachel is devastated, and deciding that her marriage is indeed over she moves to a little quaint Scottish island cottage where she can devote her mind to her writing. She is a loner, talking only on cell phone to her best friend Sharon (Kate Isitt) in London, until she meets her neighbors the Murrays (James Cosmo and Joanna Hole) who befriend her. She begins to see visions of Thomas, talks to him knowing that he is just in her imagination, until she meets some townspeople who undermine her belief in departed spirits. There is a lighthouse off the coast and Rachel boats out, meets the lighthouse keeper Angus (Hans Matheson who is remembered for his Marius in 'Les Misérables', as Nero in 'Imperium: Nero', and Yuri in 'Dr. Zhivago' and Robert Devereaux, Earl of Essex in 'The Virgin Queen' - the latter two being TV miniseries). Slowly the two develop an attraction and affair, only for Rachel to find out from the townsfolk that Angus has been dead for seven years! At this point the mystery takes precedence and the intricate truths of a terrifying plot unfold: the race to the ending is filled with surprises and unexpected events. The cinematography by Ashley Rowe and the musical score by Brett Rosenberg add enormously to the mood of this piece. HALF LIGHT is a solid movie, filled with suspense and well-written story and character development and deserves far more attention than it received in the theaters. Demi Moore proves again that she can handle dramatic roles well and Hans Matheson is most assuredly a young actor to watch! Grady Harp

Demi Moore does a lot of these kind of offbeat films, and always makes it a must-see.
