Her older sister is beautiful, smart, and off to Duke in the fall; her mom’s pregnant with number four (Dad wants a son), and Dad’s pretty strict. Life gets sweeter when 17-year-old Court Foster, his widowed mom, and two little brothers move into the vacant farm next door. Court likes Dani’s high spirits and direct way, and though he has a man’s responsibilities on the farm, they go off swimming sometimes. The waters of adolescence are deeper than Dani realizes as hers and Court’s feelings get jumbled. Then Mother Nature throws wrenching surprises at Dani, and she must come to terms with new emotions.
Plot: Maureen Trant and her younger sibling Dani share a strong connection, but local boy Court Foster threatens to throw their bond off balance. Dani and Court meet first and have a flirtatious rapport — but when he meets Maureen, he falls hard and they begin a passionate affair. The new couple try to keep their love hidden from Dani, but she soon learns the truth, disavowing her sister. But a heartbreaking accident later reunites the girls.

Pretty good film.
“The Man In The Moon” is a pretty good movie. It is very touching at times and is very well done in all respects. I wouldn’t say the film was terribly original, but what is these days?
The cast members all did a great job with their respective roles. I really enjoyed seeing Reese Witherspoon at such a young age, and does quite a good job. Jason London does a fine job as well. And the only other person I recognized was Sam Waterston, who did a fantastic job with his role. I really liked Sam’s character (Matthew Trant) a lot. At times he seemed to be the kind of father you dread, but in the end you really like his character. The rest of the cast was very good as well.
If you’re into touching movies about growing up and dealing with what life throws at you, then you ought to watch this film. I’d suggest reading the plot synopsis and if that sounds like something you’d be interested in, then go for it. Anyhow, hope you enjoy the film, thanks for reading,
Unsatisfying characters & plot
I like romances. Here’s what I liked: the scenery (I got the “feel” of living in rural Louisiana, and that was great); and Matt’s good, fatherly words to Dani on the boat were worth the movie. Here’s where the movie failed me. Though I love Sam Waterston, I’m a northerner who’s now lived in the South for 14 years, and see here and elsewhere that when northerners (Sam’s from Boston) try to play Southerners, they get so much wrong, which Sam does. I like his fatherly role, but his style, mannerisms, and accent are just out of place as a Louisiana dad. If I were a Southerner, I’d feel very poorly represented. Sometimes the writing was just bad, with characters saying things way too “philosophy of life-ish.” They were little monologues that were out of place. Lastly, with the writing, characters are sometimes having all this emotion one way or the other when “all that” wouldn’t be possible to have built up in the character in the short time frame that the storyline proposes. There’s betrayal in the movie that is simply accepted by all the characters (but one), so the person wronged is never given any sense of consolation or true apology. That left me wanting. Maureen’s character was flat–in the end, I needed some kind of character growth (realizations) in her that the writer(s) never delivered. That was disappointing.
