When Joe Nast's plans for marriage change due to an unexpected loss, he wants to be the man he believes everyone wants him to be, dutifully bereaved husband-to-be, and perfect would-be- son-in-law to Ben and JoJo. But when another woman unexpectedly enters his life, he's quickly torn between fulfilling his new role and following his heart.
Romantic Comedy - This drama will hold most appeal to older adults, but its generous
doses of humor would also endear it to a younger audience, not to

Review Above Average "Silberling invites us to revel in the five stages of
grief, but the film's real intent is to soothe rather than pierce, to make
sadness look cozy and domesticated. Its subject might better be described as the
five flavors of grief.''
James Berardinelli, Internet Critic
Review Below Average "There are many things wrong with Moonlight Mile,
but the most persistent is bad writing. This is an insultingly inept and
artificial examination of grief and its impacts upon the relationships of the
survivors. It uses facile keys to show recovery.''
Review Excellent "Moonlight Mile gives itself the freedom to feel
contradictory things. It is sentimental but feels free to offend, is analytical
and then surrenders to the illogic of its characters, is about grief and yet
permits laughter...Not many movies know that truth. "Moonlight Mile"
is based on it.''
Review Good "A multifaceted love story, Moonlight Mile is most
compelling when exploring Hoffman and Sarandon's relationship and the love they
grow to feel for Gyllenhaal, who keeps the spirit of their dead daughter alive.
The romance between Gyllenhaal and Pompeo is less interesting, though still
