Besides telling a terrific tale, Half Light has beautiful music - I see we have a petition going for the soundtrack, GREAT! Until that gets released, enjoy similar music by Arlene Faith - check it out at: www.woodenstonemusic.com I just purchased two of her cds, Spirit of the Celtic Violin and River of Dreams. It's hard to find this type of music without singing and these are treasures! Demi Moore's acting ability in this movie really came through - I hope she pursues more movies along this line and reactivates her career! In a rare move, I've recommended Half Light to all my friends and family and have yet to hear someone say they didn't enjoy it!
