Product Description

Oscar? winners Dustin Hoffman (Best Actor, 1980, Kramer vs. Kramer), Susan Sarandon (Best Actress, 1996, Dead Man Walking), and Holly Hunter (Best Actress, 1994, The Piano) star with Jake Gyllenhaal (The Good Girl) in Moonlight Mile -- an uplifting story of endearing honesty and humor. When Joe Nast (Gyllenhaal) experiences an unexpected loss, he wants to be the man he believes everyone wants him to be -- the dutifully bereaved husband-to-be and the perfect would-be son-in-law to Ben (Hoffman) and Jojo (Sarandon). But then another woman unexpectedly enters his life, and he's torn between fulfilling his new roles and following his heart.

Like many people my interest in seeing "Moonlight Mile" had as much to do with the fact writer-director Brad Silberling's story stems in part from the tragic murder of his girlfriend Rebecca Schaeffer as it does with the cast featuring a trio of Oscar winners in Dustin Hoffman, Susan Sarandon, and Holly Hunter. However, it is not fair to characterize this film as a cathartic exercise on Silberling's part; the genesis for the film's story is more the relationship he shared with the parents of his girlfriend than her murder. Those looking for strong parallels between fact and fiction will be disappointed, because the resonance of this film has to do with the relationship between young Joe Nast (Jake Gyllenhall) and the couple who were almost his in-laws, Ben (Hoffman) and JoJo Floss (Sarandon). It is in trying to keep talking and to find ways of just functioning while they are overwhelmed by grief that we can convince ourselves Silberling is sharing with us "truth" about what it would be like to be in the shoes of such people.
When "Moonlight Mile" begins it is three days after Diana Floss (Careena Melia) was shot in an ice cream shoppe across the street from her father's commercial reality office. A guy walked in intending to gun down his wife; she received two bullets in the head but survived, while Diana was killed. Now Joe finds himself living with Ben and JoJo trying to figure out what to do next. Part of this is becoming Ben's partner in what will now be called "Floss & Son," although commercial realty in a small New England economically depressed town in the early 1970s does not make much sense.

I'll admit it now, my reason for buying this film was because of my little obsession with Jake Gyllenhaal, however I found this film to be brilliant!
At first I thought the story sounded a little depressing-girl shot dead leaving her greiving parents and fiance to pick up the pieces. It is so much more than that. It deals with death in a really good way-the characters show grief but subtley.
Susan Sarandon and Dustin Hoffman as the parents are amazing as always and Jake Gyllenhaal and Ellen Pompeo as the fiance and his new love intrest truly hold their own opposite them.
The film has an excellent soundtrack and I highly recommend it!

By Mr. Joe HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on 14 Mar. 2006
Format: DVD
MOONLIGHT MILE opens on the morning of the day during which Diana Floss is to be buried by her father Ben (Dustin Hoffman), mother JoJo (Susan Sarandon), and fiancé Joe (Jake Gyllenhaal). Diana was caught in the gunfire a man directed at his wife, a waitress in a local cafe. The remainder of the film follows Joe for 2-3 weeks as he continues to live in Diana's old room, serving to keep the girl's memory alive for Ben and JoJo. Moreover, Joe sticks with the original plan to have been followed after he and Diana were married, i.e. to join Ben as a partner in his commercial real estate business. And there are occasional sidebars to the legal proceedings against Diana's killer being handled by lawyer Mona (Holly Hunter).
The film is a perceptive and not overly sentimental depiction of the mourning of the Walking Wounded after the grave of a loved one is covered over and the friends and food of Shiva week are gone. (The Floss family is Jewish.) Sarandon has perhaps the meatiest role as JoJo. Her monolog to Joe about what keeps her and Ben together (and bickering) after 31 years is the Great Truth of many marriages, I suspect, and possibly the movie's best single scene.
Notwithstanding my high regard for the film, I'm bothered by the niggling feeling that Gyllenhall's portrayal of Joe was too one dimensional. It's as if his life begins with the opening scene. At no time does the audience learn about his past. Where was he born and raised? Does he have siblings or living parents? Did he have dreams of being anything before meeting Diana? It's like he's this orphan, a blank slate upon which his connection with the Floss family writes.

This is a heartbreaking study of grief, with strong performances all around. Dustin Hoffman is the Graduate Benjamin 40 years on, and is masterful as the father battling extreme bereavement - particularly effective in the scene when he visits the site of his daughter's pointless death. Susan Sarandon is pretty much as you could expect, but a real class act. Jake Gyllenhaal captures the confusion of the situation well, and the film has a killer soundtrack. Recommended

This is one of the best films i have EVER seen.
I rented it from a video shop and watched it at least 3 times before returning it- and have just ordered the dvd. With a fantastic soundtrack, great script and superb acting all round, this is one film not to be missed.
Jake Gyllenhaal plays the part of Joe Nast superbly. He hardly has to move a muscle to bring across a new emotion and just fits right into the part- it really is like watching life on a video. Then Dustin Hoffman and Susan Sarandon are as great as they always have been and somehow manage to convey the awkwardness felt at such times with a great deal of emotion and humour. However I feel the best part of this film comes in the form of the stunning Ellen Pompeo. I have never seen her in anything before but she steals the show in this one. She really shows emotion and you feel everything s though you are right there.
I believe this is a great film, even if you are not into this gene it it well worth seeing.( and buying!)
