Alabama Moon


on Oct 24, 2012

Eleven-year-old Moon Blake has spent most of his life hiding out in the forests of Alabama with his father, an anti-government radical who clings to conspiracy theories and trusts no one. Moon’s life suddenly changes when the land is sold and his father dies. Knowing only what he learned from his father, Moon decides to follow his last instructions; make your way to Alaska where “people could still make a living off trapping.” Through his journey he builds friendships and comes across the mean-spirited Constable Sanders. The film is based on the novel by Watt Key and stars John Goodman and Clint Howard. (Dir. Tim McCanlies)
