Movie Info

DON'T COME BACK FROM THE MOON is a story of abandonment, when all the men in a remote California desert town walk away from their families, one by one. They leave their angry, frustrated sons and daughters behind -- kids who act out, engage in acts of petty burglary and vandalism, and look for love and family connection in the aftermath of their abandonment, all the while trying to understand why their fathers have "gone to the moon," leaving them to traverse the difficult path to adulthood alone.

For a movie that is supposedly about the consequences of absentee fathers, it sure has little of importance to say about the families they desert. The Moon deserves better symbolism.

It's a very small movie with a very big emotional force that unfolds through the eyes of 16-year-old Mickey, sensitively played by promising newcomer Jeffrey Wahlberg.

An artful and affecting mix of harshly defined specifics and impressionistic storytelling

The movie's emotional potency is undeniable, its slow crescendo of wounded feelings and shimmering photography leaving unexpected imprints on the eyes and heart.

If "Don't Come Back From the Moon" isn't entirely successful, it means well as an engaged, considerate tour of a recognizably broken landscape
