The Pale Blue Eye

Release Dates: January 6, 2023

Platform: Netflix

A gothic crime thriller set in the 1830s about a detective (Christian Bale) who investigates a series of murders at West Point with the help of a young cadet, a man known as Edgar Allan Poe (Harry Melling). While the macabre poet and detective novelist did attend West Point, this one is not based on a true story. Critics were mixed, but the intriguing premise, historical research, and cast are the hook — including Bale, Gillian Anderson, Lucy Boynton, Toby Jones, and Charlotte Gainsbourg.
