Christopher De Leon,
A group of street kids find that the only way to make it through the day is to hold onto their dreams while their reality is eating out of dumpsters, turning tricks and squatting in abandoned buildings.
I caught Blue Moon at a special screening where the director was present. When someone asked him what the movie was about, the first thing he said was "My Mom loves it." I'll leave that for you to judge. The film centers on an older couple who've lost the oomph in their relationship and a younger couple unsure of whether they should stay together. With a theatrical style and a comedic eye, it lightly explores the evolution of relationships as experienced through the two couples. On the plus side, it's a sweet movie and the actors all give strong performances. The older couple is especially likeable, which is a rarity for a moviegoer in his early 20s, like myself. However, despite its good intentions, the film is rather slow-moving and remarkably short on emotional interaction with the audience: it feels more like a pretty slide show than an endeavour of passion. If low-key entertainment is what you're after, this one's a match.
