Overview

The personal turning points of a family in crisis are portrayed against the backdrop of one of America's most tumultuous summers in this drama. In 1969, Pearl Kantrowitz Diane Lane is spending the summer at a resort in the Catskills. Married to TV repairman Marty Liev Schreiber and the mother of two children, respectably middle-class Pearl feels trapped by domestic life and inwardly lusts after a traveling salesman named Walker Viggo Mortensen. When Marty is called back to the city one weekend, Pearl impulsively arranges to meet Walker at a music festival going on in nearby Bethel, New York -- The Woodstock Music and Art Fair. However, Pearl doesn't realize that her teenage daughter Alison Anna Paquin has secret plans of her own, and when mother and daughter meet in the midst of hippiedoms's most celebrated moment, both have a lot of explaining to do, to each other and to Marty. A Walk On The Moon was produced in part by Dustin Hoffman, and premiered at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival.

    The music is remarkable in this film and so is the writing. All

    The music is remarkable in this film and so is the writing. All 3 protagonists give superb performances about the choices laid out before us in life. The best thing though is how, once committed, we must continue to choose over and over again in each chapter of life. Just when you think something is settled, it roars back to vex you again. The generations help each other at these decision points.WOW.

    Great Find

    I love this movie. My husband doesn't understand why. He gets upset about the fact that I could actually like a movie about a cheating spouse. I love my husband and my kids and wouldn't change a thing. The movie however displays that lost longing so well that it's easy to get lost in the emotions of the film. Diane Lane and Viggo Mortensen are great plus I love Anna Paquin's raw portrayal of first crushes. The excitement, the confusion, the pain. One of my favorites.

    A WALK WORTH TAKING

    I AM NOT THE BIGGEST DIANE LANE OR VIGGO MORTENSEN FAN. THE DRAW FOR ME WAS THE ALWAYS SUPERB LIEV SCHREIBER WHO WAS AT HIS BEST IN THIS FILM.THE ADDED BONUS OF THE REST OF THE CAST'S GREAT INPUT WAS THE ICING ON THE CAKE.

    Decisions, Decisions

    After seeing Lord of the Rings, I did some searching for other films with Viggo Mortensen, and found this little gem. A walk on the Moon has three major events occurring in a family vacationing in the katskills. (1)The mother is having an affair with the Blouseman, a traveling salesman (with such unexpected depth, as played by Viggo, that by the end of the movie, you're unsure whether or not she SHOULD go back to her less-than-sympathetic-husband, Leiv Schreiber; (2)Her daughter has fallen in love with a local boy,and (3)the rest of the world is enthralled by seeing man's first walk on the moon. It's also worth the price of admission for Viggo's brief nude scene.

    Freedom?

    This is a movie of three simultanious love stories.The first is Pearl's affair with a free spirited traviling salesman.The second is pearl's daughter's romance which runs parallel to her own affair,and finally Pearl's continued love for her husband. The time of this story is 1969,with all of its turmoil concerning the Vietnam war,womans liberation,free love and the clash between generations. In the opening scene Pearl and her family arrive at summer camp which is near Woodstock.Pearl is in her early 30s,married at 17,two children,the oldest is 13.The husband stayes weekends and returns to work repairing tv's. After her husband leaves for the week,Pearl meets the Blouse Man,an easy going ,playful,flirting man who has a bus converted into a mobil blouse store.Pearl is attracted to this man and quickly enters into an affair.At the same time her daughter enters into her first relationship.Both of these summer romances are equal from the first tentative steps of the first meeting to intimacy.Both romances speed along at the velocity of adolescent infatuation,so fast, that Pearl asks the Blouse Man his name at the same time that he is disrobing her prior to sexual relations. While Pearl is in the mists of her affair,she continues her married life,which includes a playful romp with her husband in the back seat of their car. The conflict is in Pearl's need to choose between the two men;the lover with his mild ways and his freedom from the restraints of society or her husband who is a dependable family man. Pearl's early marriage and children gave her about 'two weeks'of her own adolscence,which she now yearns for.Can the Blouse Man's freedom give her back her lost youth? or do her needs rest in her husband who lovs her,is stable,has no vices,but does not hear her hints about her frustrations while the lover wants to leave the problems behind?. Both men meet her sexual needs,but what other needs does each man meet which the other does not?Who does she choose?Does she love the Blouse Man or the freedom he reprsents?Does she love her husband or the stability he brings to the family? Psycologist report that only 10% of lovers marry or continue after the affair is discovered.There are no statistics available as to the durability of a marriage in like circumstances. our expectation of faithfulness in marriage is lowered do to the fact that infidelity will touch 50% of all marriages.Perhaps we will stay married inspite of wandering spouses. We are becoming very French in our attitudes.
