‘The Escapist’

Literary life gone mad.

“People go a little bit funny at literary festivals,” says Irish playwright Conor McPherson, who exploits this closed, liquor-soaked society in his moving drama The Eclipse. The always excellent Ciarán Hinds plays a driver who gets entangled with the writer (Iben Hjejle) he ferries around a small Irish town. Like McPherson’s Shining City and The Seafarer, the personal drama is soon intriguingly interrupted by the supernatural. “The journey that he goes on,” McPherson says, “is immense for such a small movie.”
