Brilliantly directed by Robert Mulligan (To Kill a Mockingbird, The Summer of 42), The Man in the Moon is a poignant and bittersweet tale Roger Ebert calls a wonderful movie...a victory...a meticulously prepared masterpiece. Fourteen-year-old Dani (Reese Witherspoon) and her older sister Maureen (Emily Warfield) have always shared everything. But when Court Foster (Jason London) moves in nex ... (more)

" Ella:) Hm, I don't know exactly what to think about this movie. I can't say it was boring or tiring, or had no sense. He even pulled some emotion out of me. But, as if something is missing. Don't even think of a happy ending but the depth of the story between Dani and Court.

Favorite scene: My favorite scene is one where Dani and her father talks in the "

Tapahtumat sijoittuvat 1950-luvulle, jolloin Elvis oli kingi. Mulliganin hallittu ohjaus ja Reesen energinen, mutta luonteva roolisuoritus tekevät tästä "

Life gets sweeter when 17-year-old Court Foster, his widowed mom, and two little brothers move into the vacant farm next door.
