"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.

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 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.

It's hard to imagine anyone managing to steal a movie not only from charismatic rising star Jake Gyllenhaal but also from accomplished Oscar winners Susan Sarandon, Dustin Hoffman and Holly Hunter, yet newcomer Ellen Pompeo pulls off the feat with aplomb.

Sarandon is terrific as the bereaved mother who defiantly refuses to be handled or comforted.
