The Man in the Moon

Type: New Blu-Ray

Reese Witherspoon (Legally Blonde, Big Little Lies) makes her screen debut in The Man in the Moon directed by Robert Mulligan (Academy Award® nominee for Best Director, To Kill a Mockingbird).


Set in the 1950’s rural south, this coming-of-age drama tells of a family upended when romantic rivalries and sudden tragedy strike close to home. Sisters Dani (Witherspoon) and Maureen (Emily Warfield, the TV film Dream Date) find their close bond torn apart when they both fall for the new boy in town (Jason London, Dazed and Confused). Photographed by the great Freddie Francis (the two-time Academy Award® winning cinematographer for Glory and Sons and Lovers), The Man in the Moon features supporting turns by Sam Waterston (Academy Award® nominee for Best Actor, The Killing Fields, TV’s Law & Order), Tess Harper (Academy Award® nominee for Best Supporting Actress, Crimes of the Heart) and Gail Strickland (The Drowning Pool) with a tender and evocative score by James Newton Howard (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight).
