The Pale Blue Eye is based on the Louis Bayard novel of the same name. The film is inspired by the writings of Edgar Allan Poe and features a fictional version of the author.

The Pale Blue Eye follows Augustus Landor (Bale), a detective who teams up with a young Poe (Melling) to investigate a series of murders at the United States Military Academy in West Point, N.Y., in 1830.

"A world-weary detective is hired to discreetly investigate the gruesome murder of a cadet. Stymied by the cadets' code of silence, he enlists one of their own to help unravel the case -- a young man the world would come to know as Edgar Allan Poe," an official description reads.

Gillian Anderson, Lucy Boynton, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Toby Jones and Robert Duvall also star.
