Synopsis

Oscar® nominees* Sam Waterston and Tess Harper and veteran actress Gail Strickland (Norma Rae) join three talented newcomers in this deeply moving film (Los Angeles Times) about coming of age and sexual discovery in rural, 1950s Louisiana. 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 next door, the sisters become rivals as Dani experiences her first feelings of affection and Maureen finds the true love she's longed for. But with love comes heartache, and the sisters soon learn a tough life lesson when tragedy strikes and the strength of their bond is the only thing that will keep their hearts from breaking.

Reviews

Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle | June 18, 2002

As drama, it's a near miss. Yet as an introduction -- or a reminder -- of a singular talent, it has its appeal.

Tom Keogh Film.com | January 01, 2000

Amadeus with a twist.

Kenneth Turan Los Angeles Times | January 01, 2000

A brilliant, almost terrifying impersonation.

Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly | January 01, 2000

A brilliant, maniacally funny, and dizzying experience.

Lou Lumenick New York Post | January 01, 2000

One of the year's most entertaining movies.

James Berardinelli ReelViews | January 01, 2000

The crowning performance of Jim Carrey's career.

David Ansen Newsweek | January 01, 2000

Kaufman always wanted to keep us guessing, and this movie respects his wishes.
