Sheri Linden Los Angeles Times A clear-eyed film that's clinical in its specifics. Nov 16, 2017 Full Review Rex Reed Observer The movie is about choices, alternatives, and how one woman regains control and balance through patience, trust and courage. Rated: 3/4 Nov 6, 2017 Full Review Sheila O'Malley RogerEbert.com A nuanced and sensitive exploration of the many ways rape affects a person's life, even as she tries like hell to get back to normal. Rated: 3/4 Nov 1, 2017 Full Review Daniel Barnes Dare Daniel The production values are low and other than Stephanie Beatriz's excellent work, the performances are amateurish, yet the film is thoughtful and detailed and non-exploitative. Rated: 3/5 May 8, 2019 Full Review Alistair Ryder The Digital Fix As a debut film, The Light of the Moon is remarkable, condensing its weighty themes down in to a winningly perceptive and achingly human character drama. Rated: 8/10 Dec 11, 2018 Full Review Christopher Machell The Quietus An intelligent and mature examination of the post-traumatic experience of sexual assault, depicting how even the good intentions of well-meaning people perpetuate a toxic culture of blaming and controlling victims.
