A smart, scary, spine-tinglingly matter-of-fact ghost story. In the Irish village of Cobh, Michael (Ciarén Hinds), a lonely widowed father, volunteers his services at the local literary festival. There, he plays on-call driver to two visiting writers: a drunken, egomaniacal celebrity novelist (Aidan Quinn) and a gentle, comely author of paranormal fiction (Iben Hjejle). There’s a love triangle, as well as a ghost that will make you jump (seriously). But what holds The Eclipse together is Hinds’ sorrowful and moving performance as a man haunted in more ways than one. B+
