Critic Reviews of "The Man In The Moon"VarietyMarch 26, 2009
Newcomer Witherspoon manages to strike exactly the right note as the tomboy on the verge of womanhood while Waterston works on several levels at once.Time OutJune 24, 2006
The heart-warming tone steadily becomes overheated.New York TimesAugust 30, 2004
Gets an outstandingly natural performance out of Miss Witherspoon, who has no trouble carrying a lot of the film single-handedly. It falls to her to remind the audience that this story is at heart about a family, and she does.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
"The Man in the Moon" is a wonderful movie, but it is more than that, it is a victory of tone and mood. It is like a poem.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
"The Man in the Moon" is an intimate, sentimental coming-of-age drama, a sweet little puppy love movie crushed by the enormity of its tragic twists.TheFilmJournal.com (Ohio)March 31, 2005
Mulligan uses a delicate touch in revealing the confusion in growing up and the loss in discovering that the world isn't as simple or perfect as children believe it to be.Classic Film and TelevisionJanuary 24, 2005
Beautifully filmed, with Mulligan's special gifts for depicting country life and the South.Spirituality and PracticeJuly 15, 2003
Tender and touching film about two sisters whose close relationship is tested by the joy of love and the pain of grief.Montreal Film JournalSeptember 10, 2002
"The Man in the Moon" doesn't break anything, but it does know a thing or two about first love and friendship. A small gem.Kalamazoo GazetteJuly 29, 2002
"a drama that lingers on in the memory"rec.arts.movies.reviewsJanuary 01, 2000
Self-contained in its own simplicityAustin ChronicleJanuary 01, 2000
This cast is a knock-out. As the parents, veterans Sam Waterston, Tess Harper and Gail Strickland lead these novice teen actors in setting standards that these young performers will spend the rest of their careers trying to emulate.
