This is an excellent movie based on the Watt Key book by the same name, following a young boys' (Moon) trials and tribulations after his father passes away.

Directed by Tim McCanlies, known for The Iron Giant, Secondhand Lions, and Dancer, Texas Pop. 81, this movie is another great work by McCanlies. Much like Secondhand Lions, McCanlies captures the experiences Moon is going through so well. I've seen this movie half a dozen times and each time I get drawn into Moon's world. Clint Howard does an excellent job as does John Goodman. Jimmy Bennett as Moon is the perfect fit as well.

Hopefully we'll see a Bluray version soon.

Outstanding!!!! 5 stars....

A great family film about a boy raised in the wild basically, parents die. Sent to a school for boys run by heartless people.

Boy (moon) and 3 others break out and on the run using his skills as a woods-boy they survive and have a great adventure.

Hunted by a dirty cop, they run and have fun doing it.

Full of surprises, Bennett and Goodman give outstanding performances as do the other main kids in the movie. You learn how to laugh, cry and change all overnight.

This is a MUST SEE as it brings back the adventures I had when I was a kid and the times playing in the woods. And it is also good for young people to see it.

This is a great little film and excellent for watching with kids, particularly boys.

John Goodman delivers a great character, and the child lead plays his role very well.

This film didn't get seen by many, which is very common these days for little indies, but the cool thing is that (like Firefly and so many other projects) it may get found though online distribution.

Share it with your friends.

This movie follows the books closely and is very good. Watch for language with younger children. I highly recommend both the book and the movie. John Goodman is an excellent Mr. Wellington.

This movie is delightful to watch and carries on through to a very satisfying ending. Alabama Moon is the story of a young boy raised in very unusual circumstances who overcomes obstacles with his youthful determination and eventually finds himself a place where he can love and be loved in return.

Having been taught to distrust people, he has to learn that although there are bad people around there are also many good people that will help if given the opportunity. Fortunately, when he needs help the most, those people step forward to help him find his way. The overall impression of the movie is inspiring and hopeful; this is one suitable for the entire family.

Beautiful story with no mush! The story of a young boy who realizes that what he thinks is right and that he can be a part of society.
