Moonlight Mile | 2002 | PG-13 | - 3.3.5

Dustin Hoffman and Susan Sarandon star as grieving parents who take in their late daughter's fiancé (Jake Gyllenhaal), who's determined to play-out fully the role of bereaved husband-to-be. The situation becomes uncomfortably complicated though when he falls in love with another woman and is torn between his perceived duty and his heart. Also with Holly Hunter and Ellen Pompeo. [1:57]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - There is an extended scene showing a couple caressing each other; she removes her top and we see her bare back, they lie back onto a couch and sex is implied. A man, in bed with a woman, is bare-chested following what is suggested to be a sexual encounter. A man tries to kiss a woman, but is interrupted when she has to go to the bathroom. A young woman is shown in a bathtub with bare shoulders and legs exposed, and we see a man bare-chested. There is some sexual innuendo when a man is asked if a woman has tried to "jump him" yet.

VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - We see a reenactment of a murder and hear details of the incident and of blood at the crime scene. A dog vomits on a woman's shoes; we hear the dog retch and then people in the room comment about what has happened. A couple discusses the details of their daughter's murder. A man talks about wanting the murderer of his daughter eviscerated and ripped apart. A dog and cat fight briefly (we don't see any injuries). A man yells in a street, in despair and frustration. We hear about an abusive marriage and a man and a woman argue. A woman confronts a man about his sneaking out to meet another woman. There are tense moments during courtroom scenes.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
