Overview
Oscar nominees Sam Waterston and Tess Harper, and veteran actress Gail Strickland (Norma Rae) join three talented newcomers in this "deeply moving film" (Los Angeles Times) about coming of age and sexual discovery in rural, 1950s Louisiana. Brilliantly directed by Robert Mulligan (To Kill A Mockingbird, The Summer Of '42), The Man In The Moon is a poignant and bittersweet tale Roget Ebert calls "a wonderful movie…a victory…a meticulously prepared masterpiece."

Fourteen-year-old Dani (Reese Witherspoon) and her older sister Maureen (Emily Warfield) have always shared everything. But when Court Foster (Jason London) moves in next door, the sisters become rivals as Dani experiences her first feelings of affection and Maureen finds the true love she's longed for. But with love comes heartache, and the sisters soon learn a tough life lesson when tragedy strikes and the strength of their bond is the only thing that will keep their hearts from breaking.
