Favorite Summer Movies: A WALK ON THE MOON
It is 1969 and the walk on the moon is imminent. The movie takes place at a camp for Jewish families in the mountains. Diane Lane is a lonely wife and mother who falls hard for a salesman (Mortensen). The is a different movie than ones we usually see, capturing what family camps were like in that era. Not much glamor here. This is the one that brought Lane back in 1989. She captures the desires and frustrations of a woman caught in a fairly dull marriage with not enough to do.
