Once in a while you will see a beautiful film that will touch your heart and make you laugh, cry and smile all in one sitting. "Moondance Alexander" is such a film. I had the honor of seeing this movie during a film festival, along with my children, and all of us absolutely loved it. The actors in the film were brilliantly chosen for their roles--Kay Panabaker, Don Johnson, James Best, and the Olympic medalist Sasha Cohen, and was directed by an incredibly talented husband-and-wife team of Michael and Janeen Damian! This movie reminds us of so many important things in life-- how we all want to feel accepted by others, and how hard it is to miss someone that you love so much, but it is also has moments that will make you laugh and cheer! My six-year-old daughter loved this too..she is now asking for a horse named Checkers! :) We are excitedly waiting for the dvd release so we can watch it over and over. I wish this had had been in theaters across the nation so more people could see it on the big-screen, but now it will be available to see in everyone's living rooms to reach an even wider audience. This film is a must-see and a very memorable and beautiful movie for the whole family's dvd library. I highly recommend it!
A great family movie for all to watch.
Excellent movies for the Family.
heart warming, funny, great movie for everyone
This movie was excellent and very well acted. My husband who never watches movies absolutely loved it.. Mr James Best (Roscoe P Coltrane) was a wonderful atribute to this movie. We are recomending it to others as well as buying it for a gift for others to enjoy.
Finally a real family film you can take your whole family to see.I think everyone can relate
to Moondance she is a shy girl who wants to fit in.I was also glad to see how dealing with the mean girls was written in a non-violent positive way.We need more film makers to do more of this type of film.It was also refreshing to see a movie so positive.Having lost my father to lung cancer 27 years ago after watching the film I was able to sayI'm OK.You're always pulling for Moondance and Checkers at every jump.Thank you to Michael and Janeen Damian for making a truly heart warming family film
My 5 year old enjoyed this as much as I did at 39. I think everyone can relate to Moondance on some level either from having lost someone or from being the one that was left out. This story shows how we can persevere & rise above. The movie is well written, well directed and well acted. I am already recommending it to all my friends and family. It is a true shame that it did not make it into the national theaters so that more people could have seen it.
I enjoyed it as well - the kids have watched it several times and keep asking to watch it again.
I really liked Moondance Alexander, I saw it at the L.A. Femme International Film Festival in Beverly Hills. In fact, I can't wait for it to come out so I can give it to my niece! She loves horses. But most of all, the content is so heartwarming. The mother and daughter are a great example for today's kids and the way Moondance is so focused outshines the examples we see on TV. Thanks for making a positive, clean, uplifting movie!
my impression of this movie was centered on "bullying". enough was enough. even at the end of the movie the continued bullying was never resolved. the mothers boyfriend was a disappointment. the young star did an amazing job very heartfelt but the storyline was not
entertaining enough for me. the scenery was so beautiful. too bad the plot was not as equally great.
