Director Nicholas Ray would describe In a Lonely Place as the most personal film he ever made. The deep empathy he clearly felt for the characters in his film only strengthens its power as a raw character study. Humphrey Bogart (in a vulnerable performance that ranks among his best) stars as a screenwriter who falls for Laurel Gray (Gloria Grahame), the woman who helped him escape a murder charge. As both the suspicions of the police and the screenwriter's personal troubles fail to dissipate, Gray becomes increasingly conflicted about her new love. In a Lonely Place is a complex portrait of two people in a fraught relationship and one of the most stirring dramas to emerge from noir cinema.
