    much love of food and Julia Child.

    Edge of Darkness

    Not even close to Mystic River

    In Edge of Darkness, Mel Gibson plays Boston detective Tommy Craven, hardly cowardly, who craves for revenge of his murdered daughter, Emma (Bojana Novakovic).

Attempts at suppressing that freedom, such as the book burning in Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, have met with fierce opposition.
