Trivia

When Jake Gyllenhaal and Dustin Hoffman are sitting on the park bench talking, the scene is actually two locations. When you see them from the front, that is in Marblehead, Massachusetts. When you see them from behind, you're seeing Gloucester, Massachusetts (where The Perfect Storm (2000) was filmed). You can see evidence of the two locations in the bench they are sitting on - the numbers and thickness of the slates change at the different points of view. See more »

Massachusetts did not have the death penalty in the early '70s. See more »

Surprisingly good indie with an amazing cast
4 July 2005 | by See all my reviews

When I first started watching this movie I was a bit confused. I had expected some drama and romance, but instead it looked like a comedy! But when I kept watching, I realised I was wrong, although I have to admit that the first half an hour is rather comedy than drama.

Anyway, "Moonlight Mile" is highly enjoyable. What exactly makes this movie so great? It's the acting. The cast is outstanding. Susan Sarandon and Dustin Hoffman are truly amazing as always. Jake Gyllenhaal, who we know from "Donnie Darko", was excellent as well. But, like I already said, Hoffman and Sarandon are the true stars in this one. They were both so funny from time to time! "Moonlight Mile" is definitely worth watching! A true indie with great performances!

8/10
