Disappointingly average - The Man in the Moon review by Swambi

Spoiler Alert

Despite having all the ingredents that would make the kind of film I would enjoy (1950's nostalgia, country scenes, family interactions)I found that overall it came out half-baked and failed to give a convincing story. I think the Director was trying to pull all the heart-strings at once, and it didn't come off.

Probably the best aspect was a very honest attempt to look at aspects of a young teen becoming romantically attracted to an older boy, and of her relationship with her father.

If you do watch it, and you have ever tried DIY, you will be amazed at how the shed door virtually fixed itself onto its own hinges. Also, if you know anything about agriculture, you may wonder just what type of cultivation the tractor is attempting to carry out!
