Shoot The Moon

Shoot The MoonBBB

(out of 5)

Family troubles are at the centre of this moderately enjoyable drama that borrows liberally from similar films like Ordinary People. and  are terrific as a married couple on the skids; he’s having an affair, and she’s becoming more and more preoccupied with pursuing a career.  The things that drive them apart and keep bringing them back together are sad and harrowing, but this one is also missing the moments of genuine affection that made Redford’s film so challenging on various levels. Keaton excels, but Alan Parker’s direction fails to live up to expectations.
