During the tumultuous and revolutionary summer of 1969, a devoted New York housewife sets off on her annual vacation with her two children to the Catskills.
Life takes an unexpected turn when she is seduced by a hippie shirt peddler who helps her explore uninhibited sexuality and express free love at Woodstock. She is faced with the difficult decision of returning to her husband and family or continuing her own sexual revolution.
Description by Buena Vista Home Entertainment.:
A Walk On The Moon
Dustin Hoffman presents Diane Lane (MURDER AT 1600, JACK), Liev Schreiber (SPHERE, SCREAM I&II), and Viggo Mortensen (A PERFECT MURDER, THE LORD OF THE RINGS) in a provocative and sensual story about one woman's personal sexual revolution! It's the summer of 1969 and Pearl (Lane) is spending yet another vacation with her family when she realizes that the freedom of the times is passing her by. Following a chance meeting with a sexy, free-spirited young man (Mortensen), Pearl is soon doing the unthinkable: having a daring, passionate affair! Also starring Academy Award(R)-winner Anna Paquin (Best Supporting Actress, THE PIANO, 1993; SHE'S ALL THAT) in a powerful motion picture that's been called one of the year's best -- Pearl must ultimately decide between the love of her husband and children ... or the lure of her newfound desires!
