Moonlight Mile is a 2002 movie written and directed by Brad Silberling. This film was loosely inspired by writer/director Brad Silberling's own experience. He was dating actress Rebecca Schaeffer at the time she was killed by an obsessed fan in 1989. It was partially filmed on location in South Pasadena, California, Marblehead, Massachusetts and Gloucester, Massachusetts. Neighbor's Restaurant is really Haley's Liquor Store in Old Town.
It takes its name from the Rolling Stones' song of the same name. The film's original title was Baby's In Black. It was later changed to Goodbye Hello. The film is set in 1973 and music from that era is heavily featured, (including that of the Rolling Stones, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan and Elton John), transmitting a feeling of the times.
The film is about a Massachusetts couple who was due to be married when the bride was gunned down 3 days after she and her fiancé called off the wedding without her parents' knowledge. It follows her fiancé and parents as they cope with her death and try to get themselves back on track. It also briefly follows the trial of her murderer. However, it especially deals with the relationship between her parents and her fiancé, as well as his growing relationship with a woman he meets just after the funeral.
