The Man in the Moon is a well made coming-of-age story that’s probably most memorable for being Reese Witherspoon’s introduction but also features a nice supporting cast.

PLOT SYNOPSIS


Maureen Trant (EMILY WARFIELD) and her younger sibling Dani (REESE WITHERSPOON) share a strong connection, but local boy Court Foster (JASON LONDON) threatens to throw their bond off balance. Dani and Court meet first and have a flirtatious rapport — but when he meets Maureen, he falls hard and they begin a passionate affair. The new couple try to keep their love hidden from Dani, but she soon learns the truth, disavowing her sister. But a heartbreaking accident later reunites the girls.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0.5/5


This release comes with the usual 6-page essay booklet. The only feature is the Theatrical Trailer (2:58; SD).

 


VIDEO – 4.0/5, AUDIO – 4.0/5


The Man in the Moon arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of Twilight Time and is presented in its original 1.85 widescreen aspect ratio and a 1080p high-definition transfer. This looks decent enough in HD with okay colors while skin tones appear natural looking. The audio is a DTS-HD MA 2.0 track and as dramas go, it’s adequate providing crisp, clean and clear dialogue levels while ambient noises are minimal and the score/soundtrack comes through well enough.


OVERALL – 3.0/5


Overall, The Man in the Moon is a well made coming-of-age story that’s probably most memorable for being Reese Witherspoon’s introduction but also features a nice supporting cast. This Blu-ray released through Twilight Time offers good video and audio transfers but sadly falters in the features department.
