Mid­night in the Gar­den of Good and Evil

The Weekend Australian - Review - - Pay Television -

Thurs­day, 8.35pm, Fox Clas­sics The book by John Berendt, pub­lished in 1994, is a ter­rific read. The film — made three years later, di­rected by Clint East­wood and star­ring John Cu­sack, Kevin Spacey, Jude Law and Jack Thomp­son — is not as good, but worth watch­ing for the boys’ per­for­mances. Based on real events that took place there in 1980, it tells the story of a New York re­porter, John Kelso (Cu­sack), who ar­rives in town to cover an exclusive party. In­stead he gets em­broiled in the mur­der trial of the host, Jim Wil­liams (Spacey).
