    Not many movies know that truth. Moonlight Mile is based on it.
  2. 80
    Both funny and telling about the messy passages of grief.

    An occasionally surreal meditation on coping with loss, and a love story with a dark side the size of Montana.
  4. Inside Moonlight Mile, an honest and heartbreakingly true movie is struggling to get out.
  5. What's on screen is too honest and from the heart to totally dismiss but too slick and contrived to completely embrace. This is a film that cares about genuine emotion but also wants to tame it, to tidy it up and keep it confined to quarters.
  6. 50
    A movie about grief for people who don't want to be upset too badly. It's a half-a-hankie tearjerker, a meek, polite weepie.

    I'm at a loss to account for how OFF this film is -- how a movie can seem so conscientiously earnest yet so creepily exploitive. It's like a Christmas stocking over a crematory.
