With Peter Weller ("Screamers," "Robocop"), Karen Allen ("Raiders of the Lost Ark"), and Tracey Gold (TV's "Growing Pains"). Directed by Oscar-nominee Alan Parker ("Evita," "Fame," "The Commitments"). Written by Oscar-winner Bo Goldman ("One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," "Scent of a Woman").

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Parker and Goldman seem to want this battling couple to represent a sort of romantic '60s point of view, and they show up the younger lovers as shallow, '70s-style hedonists. – Dan Callahan, Slant Magazine, Nov 30, 2007

Shoot the Moon

This movie will tear your heart out. It is well acted, particularly Diane Keaton and the oldest child. But beware: After the movie you'll feel like you've been punished. If you're thinking of getting a divorce, watch this movie before announcing your intentions.

Changed my attitude!

This movie came out as I was in the midst of an extremely painful divorce, and it actually helped me to change my life views. That happened, not because of the fairy tale type ending, but more because of the intimate look at the inner pain and sorrow that the betrayed wife was "growing" through. It gave me a new understanding of my own pain and a new hope that I would eventually evolve beyond the ugliness of the tragedy into a fuller, better person. I'd recommend it to anyone who is suffering and looking for a new and healthier life.
