Very nice! A bit of history about the Hollywood communist blacklisting is woven into the murder of an up and coming star. You find yourself liking some characters because they try to help those who were unfairly singled out when all of a sudden you find a streak of homophiobia. Then you see what happens to someone who was unfairly accused of murder. People can be hateful.
