Moonlight and Valentino is a Hallmark sympathy card of a film, pretty to look at with a message that's sincere. Yet it's hard to take its pretentious platitudes of grief and recovery too personally.

Audience Reviews for Moonlight and Valentino

Great movie, get the tissues.

Leigh Ryan

Super Reviewer

The film handles a tough subject matter pretty well. Elizabeth Perkins stands out in the good cast. It's a little too talky for my taste and it tends to be a bit too pretentious as well.

James Higgins

Witty & smoothly acted/directed look at relationships between women when one (Perkins) experiences the ultimate loss, one (Goldberg) thinks she has but hasnt, one (Turner) who is very self-confident but hides her true feelings behind it, and one (Paltrow) who is so self-concious that she obvioulsy must need prozac, lol..
