Twilight movie review
"They have the starring roles in their own lives"
Twilight is set in the luxury of talented, tasteful Los Angeles. This is not the flash and excess of L.A. Story, or the ghettos of a contemporary thriller, but rather the world of sculptural Art Deco ranch houses, where the architects and the houses have as much star power as the inhabitants who pass through them. Catherine (Susan Sarandon) and Jack (Gene Hackman) are a golden couple facing the sunset of their twenty-year love affair. He is dying of cancer, and on the outskirts of their grief, above the garage, lives Harry Ross (Paul Newman).
|Old, tired, broken by a bout of alcoholism and a gunshot from the couple's runaway daughter (Renee Witherspoon), Harry is an unpaid handyman, and Jack is the client who never pays, and who believes, as his wife does, that their privileges, their every wish, is their due.
This is Cinema Noir in its favourite locale -- the private dick in L.A., the sordid demi-monde of the beautiful people.
