Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Right down to scoring the trailer with the insistent piano of Elton John's "Someone Saved My Life Tonight," Moonlight Mile works a combination of nostalgia, grief, and uplift, trying to activate the tear ducts while lodging in the viewer's store of sentimental favorites. It almost succeeds. Brad Silberling's follow-up to City of Angels, Moonlight Mile invokes a handful of recent hits, filtering the subject matter of In the Bedroom through the out-of-time design quirks of The Royal Tenenbaums, as well as Wonder Boys' 70s soundtrack and comfort-of-home familiarity. It has too many Hollywood concessions to straddle that line between independence and accessibility, but the film does abandon some of its predecessor's more maudlin and squishy moments. Judging from his work in 2001 and 2002, Jake Gyllenhaal has patented the hipster savant with saucer eyes and messy cowlicks; this is his most effective work in that role. Dustin Hoffman and Susan Sarandon bring their Oscar credentials to the fore in splendid ways, especially Sarandon as the more complex of the two grieving parents. The post-traumatic emotional fumbling of the leads almost ties the film together, but when the script strays from their uneasy pseudo-family dynamic, it loses focus. Despite a charismatic performance from newcomer Ellen Pompeo, a young Renée Zellweger, her romance with Gyllenhaal feels beside the point, as does the murder trial subplot involving Holly Hunter as a pushy DA. It's no coincidence these scenes also contain Silberling's most derivative writing. A more mature accomplishment than City of Angels, Moonlight Mile still has some distance to go to achieve transcendence.
New York Times
Moonlight Mile has an understated, lived-in quality and a wry, unforced sense of the absurd. A.O. Scott
Chicago Sun-Times

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. Roger Ebert
Hollywood Reporter
Tackles the difficult subject of grief and loss with such life-embracing spirit that the theme doesn't drag an audience down. Kirk Honeycutt

    wow!

    This movie was simply fantastic...it made you feel every emotion all at once! Jake Gyllenhaal did a splendid job, and Susan Sarandon and Dustin Hoffman couldn't have been any more excellent. Two thumbs way up.

    BEST MOVIE EVER

    Moonlight Mile is maybe the greatest movie I've ever seen. It has so much compassion that it literally erupts with poignancy. If you're looking for a movie with spirit, love, and wit, this is it. Not to mention, the star is Jake Gyllenhaal!
