Movie Info

Grant and Christine are still struggling with the storm of grief following the death of their baby. They visit an old friend, Dean, with his new girlfriend Freya, in their isolated house by the sea. Dean tries but fails to control his drinking. Freya worries about the age difference between her and Dean. Christine confesses her secrets to Dean, upsetting his comfortably stable world of escapist fantasy and children's books. Over a long weekend, old loves, losses and resentments are revisited and the life of the dead child is lived out in a series of strange, hallucinatory dreams.

Critic Reviews for Luna

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

  • Luna is a tonal car-crash, a miscegenation of art-school pretension and countrified Boden midlife crises to a bizarre soundtrack of Spanish guitar.

  • It's a film with no interiors, in actual fact, as everything it's attempting to say bubbles forcefully on the surface.

    Oct 3, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • The drama assumes the look of lumpy, anglicised Bergman, as though this personal, potentially meaningful material simply hasn't been processed in the passage from soul to screen.

    Mike McCahill

    Guardian
    Top Critic
  • A meditation on grief and parenthood, it has some shaky moments, but their memory is largely erased by beautiful, spectral flights of fancy and a thoughtful and inventive treatment of fairly brooding subject matter.

  • Ultimately, this audacious mix of genres compensates for the conventional drama's shortcomings, and Kirwan is especially good as the broken, clenched Christine.

    Oct 3, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • An engrossing story that, at times is undone by its inclination for stylistic preferences.
