"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.

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.

Moonlight Mile might be the single most honest film ever made on the subject of grief. Not about death or dying, loss or regret, but about the grieving process itself: the highs, lows, in-betweens and the way all of them wrap, loop and intertwine.

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

'A big, comforting, baked potato of a film.'

An honestly intimate and genuinely funny account of bereavement.

Moonlight Mile makes you realize how much Dustin Hoffman's presence on the big screen has been missed the past few years.
November 20, 2002
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.

An awfully good, achingly human picture.

[Silberling] mostly succeeded in crafting an off-beat, uncomfortable (but in all the right ways), and genuinely funny and moving story out of this Movie of the Week material.
