Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil (21-Nov-1997)

Director: Clint Eastwood

Writer: John Lee Hancock

From novel: Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil: A Savannah Story‎ by John Berendt

Music by: Lennie Niehaus

Producers: Clint Eastwood; Arnold Stiefel

Keywords: True Crime

Set among the quirky Savannah upper class, hustler Billy Hanson is killed on the estate of socialite art dealer Jim Williams, and Williams stands accused of his murder. New York magazine reporter John Kelso tries to capture the story. Though simplified from the true story in the book (four trials reduced to one), complexity is manifest. Unusual material for Eastwood.
