Affable Jim Williams is hosting one of the most important parties of the Savannah Christmas season. John Kelso is a magazine reporter who finds himself amid the beautiful architecture and odd doings to write a feature on the party. His curiosity is piqued when he meets Jim's violent, young and sexy lover, Billy. Later that night, Billy is dead, and Kelso stays on to cover the murder trial. Between being Jim's buddy, cuddling up to a torch singer, meeting every eccentric in Savannah, participating in midnight graveyard rituals and helping solve the mysteries surrounding Billy's murder, Kelso has his hands full.

A great movie. Kevin spacey looked so much like the real character. Jude Law had a small part and show his great acting abilities. Having been to Savanah I loved looking at the houses and the small amount of the scenery that was shown. The script writer for the movie did change somethings for dramatic purposes. There were four trials not just one. Some characters played themselves while some were invented for the film.

Rated 5/10. Movie was too long and it meandered.

I think this is one of the lesser films by Eastwood. At close to 3 hours, this film is too long. Storytelling is straightforward and acting is alright. Nothing particularly good jumps out of it, though.

Not nearly as good as the book if you actually want to know the story. Has been dramatized a bunch for theatric appeal, though not enough to make it a great film.

Kevin Spacey is a natural at playing this role.

What a great movie: Clint Eastwood, John Cusack, Kevin Spacey, Allison Eastwood, Jack Thompson and all of those Johnny Mercer songs! I keep coming back to this one.

Cusack is perfect for the role. The entire cast is perfect!
