The Lost Moment
- 1 hr 29 min
Lewis Venable is a publisher who is determined to find and purchase a set of love letters written by a long dead poet. He finds out that the recipient of the love letters is still alive, though she is quite aged, at 101. He decides to take on a false identity in order to situate himself into the home. He rents a room from the woman and finds that her niece also resides with her. The niece has some mental health issues and believes herself to be her aunt. She also believes that Venable is the late poet and that he wrote the poems to her. He works hard to get the poems from her possession, not giving a single thought to the niece’s delicate condition or the age of the old woman. He will go to any lengths to get them, even when it puts others in serious danger.
