The Plot Lowdown:
The film follows two detectives in 1940s Los Angeles as they investigate the murder of Elizabeth Short (Mia Kirshner), known as the Black Dahlia. In a subplot to the movie, the two detectives, Bucky Bliechert (Josh Hartnett), and Lee Blanchard (Aaron Eckhart) are caught in a love triangle with Kay Lake (Scarlett Johansson). Lee and Bliechert became obsessed with the murder and it gradually consumes their lives, as they try to uncover an intricate plot that reaches far beyond the average murder, and into the depths of an underworld run by pornography, femme fatales, police corruption, crazed loonies, detectives, and criminals. A wildy graphic storyline set on the backdrop of the Black Dahlia murder.
