The Man in the Moon 1991

From Amazon: A jewel of a sleeper, The Man in the Moon comes off as a nearly perfect short story of two sisters' first competition in the field of love. In a 1950's small Louisiana farm town, 14-year-old Dani falls for Court, a 17-year-old engaging neighbor boy. The two become great friends, but Court is more interested in Dani's 17-year-old sister, Maureen, who is blossoming.

I don't know why, but it's always so hard for me to differentiate between the London twins. In this case, the brother in question is Jason. (The other brother is Jeremy.)

It sure is easy writing reviews when you don't...

The Man in the Moon Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie (3/31/2007)

A sweet little film mostly notable because it shows the talent that Reese Witherspoon had at a young age.

Here she plays the ignored, tomboy sister who is enfatuated with Jason London (remember the London twins? Good times!) but isn't 'developed' enough to catch his eye.

The film often lags, but the scenes between...
