The two main characters of the emotional performance of people laughing. I watched it on my way to the trip. The story comes from life, higher than life. The ending was good and I felt the next one. This film is a good one I've seen in recent years. The overall effect of the film is not bad.

Shoot the moon is about the disintegration of a 15 year marraige,we see how it affects the couples 4 children & how jealousy & love still ties them together.As a fan of Diane keaton,i feel that this is one of her best roles! Whilst it does feel like quite a long movie,it manages to be engaging throughout,with powerful convincing performances from all round.

5.0 out of 5 stars An underrated masterpiece. 11 Jan. 2012
By ADRIENNE MILLER - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Shoot the Moon starring Albert Finney and Diane Keaton is a blistering, explosive, and unflinching film about a two stubborn people who's marriage is starting to unravel with great speed. Finney and Keaton are remarkable as George and Faith Dunlap. George has decided to leave his wife for a self-assured woman who's also married. Faith and George have 4 girls and the oldest girl deeply resents her father for walking out. Along the way, Faith begins a romantic relationship with a much younger man and George becomes enraged towards Faith and you just have to see the ending to believe it! Shoot the Moon is a film that doesn't sugarcoat anything about a marriage on the brink of collapse. I highly recommend this film, it will leave you speechless!

5.0 out of 5 stars No better film on divorce and its affect on children 2 Aug. 2008
By Binky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I was waiting for this film to come out on DVD. It's an exceptional movie with one of the finest performances by an adolescent that you will ever see.

Albert Finney and Diane Keaton star as the Dunlaps, a successful Marin County-living couple whose marriage falls apart. Dana Hill portrays Sherry, the oldest of their four daughters (a very young Tracey Gold, Tina Yothers and Viveka Davis round out the other children).

Sherry is old enough to see what is happening, but too young to handle the aftermath. I believe that a Washington Post critic at the time, said Ms. Hill's portrayal was the finest adolescent dramatic performance ever filmed. One would be hard pressed to argue that point.

Keaton and Finney were both nominated for Golden Globes. For the amazing dramatic peformances alone, this is a must-see. For the dead-on interpretation of the effects of divorce on the family dynamic, do yourself a favor and pick up this DVD.

Diane Keaton is always a pleasure to watch. She is versatile enough for comedy and drama; her character in this movie is so believable any divorced woman will feel like her life is being played out by this wonderful actress.

5.0 out of 5 stars Covers all the bases when a father leaves his wife and kids 5 Nov. 2006
By Max R. - Published on Amazon.com

I bought this on VHS for friends going through some troubles. I last watched this film in college in 1982. I could barely sit through it then (coming from divorced parents). Now, 25 years later, happily married with three children, and none of the problems in this movie, I still fought back tears when Albert Finny came to give his daughter a typewriter and...

The writer, Bo Goldman, just nails this story and I have no doubt from personal experience. Everything is nuanced and pitch-perfect to anyone who has come from parents who separated while they were young.

If you, or a friend, are in the process of leaving your spouse and kids, watch this movie first. You should know the other side of your decision.
