Goofs

When walking on the boat bridge towards her son, on the close-ups, her hair falls backwards, like the wind is getting in her face. When the shot is changed to her right side, her hair is calm, and hanging down. See more »

Quotes

Rachel Carlson: Why is it everyone paints their boats the exact same color as their houses?
Angus McCulloch: Well, that's actually a tradition here. The wife needs to be able to look out on the water and know her husband's okay.
Rachel Carlson: That's very romantic.
Angus McCulloch: And we also get a tax-break on the paint, which is also very romantic.

"not sufficiently mysterious for a mystery, not sufficiently thrilling for a thriller..."
30 January 2006 | by SpecksynderSee all my reviews

A stereotyped script resulting in increased predictability combined with a flat but nonetheless decent direction leave an bland aftertaste of something seen a hundred times before, albeit filmed much better. The scenery is incorporated in the plot in a stylized way imbuing an overall "cliche" character to the whole endeavour manifested primarily in the various plot twists. I think the rebuffing comment ("not sufficiently mysterious for a mystery, not sufficiently thrilling for a thriller...") received by the heroine's spouse and inept writer in the beginning of the film, ironically emerges for "Halflight" as a fitting portrayal of a "tepid cup of tea", although i am not by origin the most appropriate person to pass such a judgement being not a fan of such a infusion.
