LIARS MOON is a genuine rarity: a very well produced teenage "Romeo and Juliet' drama made in 1981 and set in the deep south of the good ol' USA in 1950 - and thank god, nobody jumps off the Tallahatche Bridge a-la Ode To Billy Joe. I do believe this gorgeous film made no impression at the time... and I recently found this exquisite film on DVD in 2008 - and I am thrilled to tell ya all, this is a really really good film. There are many excellent and interesting aspects to LIARS MOON: the fantastic and accurate set design and art direction; the astute casting; the fact that the film is also made on genuine locations that really add HUD and RACING WITH THE MOON big studio quality imagery; and then there is Matt Dillon... aged about 18 and on the cusp of super-stardom thanks to THE OUTSIDERS and RUMBLEFISH. Other great acting parts belong to Broderick Crawford, Yvonne de Carlo and Susan Tyrrell, each equally effective in this beautifully created film. The photography and the lighting especially add authenticity with superb photography and image ideology. The costumes and use of real locations are the sort of quality wish-list we all want to see in a film of this style and emotion. It all works because this film is made with love care and some healthy budget. Find it and show it to teenagers.. especially daughters and nieces who will swoon squeal and cry on cue for a delicious family night at home on DVD ..in a film that does not flinch from difficult topics and good romantic suspense. In the credits you will also find Patrick Swayze's mum as choreographer.
