“What’s fresh is Weinstock’s interweaving of flashbacks, slightly altered versions of flashbacks, and flashbacks within flashbacks, so that viewers must work as hard as Lee to determine past from present; you may feel amnesiac yourself by film’s end. Leigh is an alarmingly chameleonic actress, sinewy and haggard one minute, soft and wounded the next, and Shawkat is an adept student of her mannerisms.”
“The Moment is a great example of independent film as it should be, and is definitely worth seeing more than once, just in case you miss something the first time out. Check out the ending, which is pretty wild too.”

“you find yourself enjoying the many twists and turns that THE MOMENT provides, successfully. With a truly talented cast, and featuring such strong, and beautiful performances by Jennifer Jason-Leigh, Alia Shawkat, and Martin Henderson, the film has a way of grasping the attention of the viewer, all while making every single moment completely enthralling and believable.”
In this suspenseful tale of one woman’s shattered memories and her agonized search for the truth, Jennifer Jason Leigh gives us an unforgettable portrayal that leaves us guessing even after the resolution.
