Bonnie, a young and successful Latina architect, is sexually assaulted while walking home from an evening out with friends in Brooklyn. At first, she attempts to keep the assault a secret from her long-term boyfriend Matt, but the truth quickly emerges. She emphatically denies the impact of what has just happened to her. She fights to regain normalcy and control of her life, but returning to her old life is more complicated than expected. Her attempt to recapture the intimacy she previously had with Matt falters and cracks begin to surface in their relationship. Another attack in the neighborhood only drives Bonnie further into denial, before an encounter with an at-risk woman causes her to face the truth and confront her own self-blame.

Excellent film unlike any other
21 November 2017 | by ewekSee all my reviews

Light of the Moon is a unique film, approaching the subject of rape in a sobering, relatable way. The movie begins with a stylish architect who goes out for a typical Brooklyn-night-out with friends and is assaulted on her walk home. What's remarkable and most disturbing about this movie is how it pragmatic it presents the awful crime of rape. The residual events are rational and never over dramatic as the story follows Bonnie's psychology and that of her boyfriend's through the weeks the couple attempts at resolving the incident, sometimes through awkward moments, and sometimes through tearful fights. After all, the world continues to turn around Bonnie despite what happened to her. The dialogues are visceral as we understand the feelings of Bonnie as she accuses those around her for treating her like a victim, while simultaneously we empathize with her boyfriend and his point of view. This is an eye opening film.
