In this adaptation of John Berendt’s book, a young journalist, John Kelso (John Cusack), travels to Savannah, Ga., to cover the city’s Christmas celebration amid a backdrop of eccentric characters. He becomes intrigued by a sultry singer, Mandy (Alison Eastwood), and engrossed by a murder trial. Wealthy society figure Jim Williams (Kevin Spacey) is accused of shooting his male lover, and the question is whether it was in self-defense as he claims.
Rated R. 2 hours 35 minutes.
