Eddie Harrison film-authority.com …a lovely, evocative film that’s easy to watch and enjoy, but contains valuable kernels of truth; it’s totally recommended… Rated: 4/5 May 8, 2024 Full Review Andrea Beach Common Sense Media Teens will relate to Lydia's conflicting need for change and resistance to it, while gently exploring issues of grief, loss, and moving on. Apr 30, 2024 Full Review Don Shanahan Film Obsessive A sweet little gem that stands to be a love letter to so many things for any number of audiences. Rated: 4/5 Apr 25, 2024 Full Review Josh Bell Crooked Marquee Intermittently heartwarming dramedy. Rated: B- Apr 23, 2024 Full Review Nick Rogers Midwest Film Journal Scattered throughout "The Moon & Back" are strong moments about all of the benefits you can gain elsewhere as you scale back one dream. You just have to scale back your expectations for the film conveying that message. Rated: 2.5/5 Apr 22, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews

Peter M This is what we come to Indie Films for. A directorial debut that does not disappoint, heartwarming and joyous. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/19/24 Full Review Greg R Lousy movie about absolutely nothing. Why does RT constantly allow subpar reviewers to rank these awful movies? Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 06/05/24 Full Review Audience Member Sometimes a small and honest film can be so powerful. Well crafted and nuanced performances. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/12/24 Full Review Patrick C If you're not like a jaded "professional" movie critic, and you like movies that simply make you feel good, you will enjoy this film. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/09/24 Full Review Read all reviews
