"Good luck in escrow"
Moonlight Mile
Review by Ross Anthony

A gentle mixture of tragedy and whimsy. Strong acting; solid interesting dialogue and characters, nicely captured on film. Set in the late sixties/early seventies spiced with a select few rock tunes from the time, the film hints of "Harold and Maude" without daring to be quite that odd.

Always interesting, with a gentle pace that never drags, occasionally tugging at the heart strings, but never squarely popping either, "Moonlight Mile" is still warm and involving. Mostly honest, this somber picture reveals itself slowly, intelligently, artfully.

PS: I'd have faded to black on the "By Owner" sign.
