Storyline

College poetry professor and poet Rebecca Trager Lott's husband Ben Lott has just died in a freak accident. Rebecca's support during this difficult time consists of her best friend Sylvie Morrow, her sister Lucy Trager, and her ex-stepmother Alberta Trager. Earth mother Sylvie is dealing with what she sees as the probable end of her own marriage to her husband Paul Morrow. Chain smoking Lucy is a directionless and insecure woman who is still mourning their mother's death fourteen years earlier from cancer. And Wall Street executive Alberta, who Lucy in particular doesn't like in her life (especially as Alberta and their father have since divorced) is a domineering but admittedly efficient woman who treats her personal life as an extension of her professional life. As time progresses and each woman deals with her own issues while trying to help Rebecca, a hunky house painter who they have nicknamed "Valentino" enters their collective lives. "Valentino" profoundly affects each of their ... Written by Huggo

Great actresses in a mediocre film
9 August 2003 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Moonlight and Valentino is the sincere attempt to portray a grieving woman.When I saw the film for the first time I was amazed by the acting abilities of Elizabeth Perkins. The rest of the cast was also great. (Gwyneth Paltrow,Kathleen Turner, Whoopi Goldberg give all great performances)Unfortunately the film is not coherent enough and the ending is also very flat.So it was not a great movie but at least entertaining with great and charming actresses. 6/10
