Adrien Brody, Diane Lane, Ben Affleck and Bob Hoskins star in this historical mystery. The film speculates on the 1959 death of actor George Reeves, TV's Superman. Did Reeves commit suicide, or was he murdered by a jealous studio executive? The film's framing device, about a detective (Brody) investigating the circumstances of Reeves' demise, actually manages to detract from what could have been a perfectly poignant tale of a Hollywood has-been (played by Affleck). The period recreation is tight, but the script tries too hard to be Citizen Kane or something. 126 minutes R.
