Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is a 1997 film directed by Clint Eastwood, and an adaptation the book of the same name. The film features Kevin Spacey as Jim Williams and Jude Law as Danny Hansford. He was called Billy Carl Hanson in the film, so as not to offend members of the Hansford family. The Lady Chablis appears as herself in a supporting role.

Several changes were made from the book. Many of the more colorful characters were eliminated or made into composite characters. The reporter role, played by John Cusack, was based upon Berendt. However Cusack's character was given a love interest not featured in the book, a role played by Eastwood's daughter Alison Eastwood. The multiple Williams trials were combined into one on-screen trial. Jim Williams's real life attorney Sonny Seiler appeared in the movie in the role of Judge White, the presiding judge at the film's trial.

Reviews of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil were generally mixed, with praise for Spacey's likeness to Williams and the inclusion of Chablis. The film's box office performance was ultimately disappointing. Fans of the book were generally disappointed with the film, particularly because of the aforementioned differences.

Advertising for the film became a source of controversy when Warner Bros. used elements of Jack Leigh's famous photograph in its posters for the movie without his permission. They later settled out of court for an undisclosed sum.

The film featured a cameo by Uga V, the English bulldog live mascot of the University of Georgiamarker, playing his father, Uga IV. The Uga mascots live in Savannah between football games.



Integral to the film was the soundtrack, dedicated to the music of Johnny Mercer, a Savannah native. The CD (Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil: Music from and Inspired by the Motion Picture—1997) includes versions of songs heard in the film.
