"Moonlight Mile" is about livable compromises and the doubt and panic that linger once life's plans scatter and persist even as they settle again. Moreover, it's about the hardship of survivors honoring someone from whom they're best off moving on.

Probably one of the most realistic, poignant, and intimate portraits into the lives of characters in mourning.

At the very least an emotionally honest film, but it would have been far more affecting if it felt more true to life.

Starring the likes of Susan Sarandon and Dustin Hoffman, filmmaker Brad Silberling delivers a personal movie that reassures us that that we will one day understand those terrible things that happen to us.

Its original look at loyalty and loss subsides into a forgettable love story, leading it out of the darkness and straight into schmaltzville.

Moonlight Mile is, at the very least, an emotionally honest film, but it would have been far more affecting if it felt more true to life.

I appreciate what the film has to say about honesty and moving on with life. But ... the film's ultimate 'insights' about going on with life seem hollow and insufficient.

Excessivamente ansioso para provocar as lágrimas do espectador, o roteiro torna-se superficial e maniqueísta, transformando o sofrimento de seus personagens em verdadeira tortura para o público.

Has an emotional resonance above what we've come to expect/dread from big name Hollywood movies.

Donnie Brighto is what they should have called this feeble, sucrose emotional drama starring Jake Gyllenhaal.

In addition to the strong performances, the script is teeming with lovely, knowing moments, and the camera moves artfully.

There's no hint of giant bunnies or falling airline engines; just good solid family drama. .

"...life isn't black and white, and often the funniest moments arise at the most tragic times. It's funny, sad, unpredictable and richly rewarding, this unusual love story set in a small town that shows us that dreams aren't really dreams, unless they are w

Well-acted by its impressive cast, but ultimately very slow to the point of being boring and unengaging -- still, it's a treat to see Hoffman onscreen again.

Cameron Crowe did not write or direct Moonlight Mile, but he may as well have, since the movie feels and looks and most of all sounds like his work. From my point of view, this is not a compliment...

I suspect that it will find a place in the heart of anyone who has lost and gone on to live and love again... or at least those who are willing to open themselves up to that emotional ride.

Moonlight Mile makes you realize how much Dustin Hoffman's presence on the big screen has been missed the past few years.
