Moonlight Mile

moonlight.jpgStarring Susan Sarandon, Dustin Hoffman, and Jake Gyllenhaal, this is one of those hyper emotional movies that let actors strut their stuff. Gyllenhaal plays a young man living with the parents of his fiance who was shot and killed pretty much at random. Hoffman and Sarandon, the parents, consider Gyllenhaal their son-in-law to the point that he's offered a position in Hoffman's commercial real estate business. What they don't know is that Gyllenhaal and their daughter had broken off their engagement and hadn't figured out how to tell the parents before she was killed. This sets the stage for some fine performances and, believe it or not, some pretty funny moments as everyone works through some difficult transitions.
