Author(s): 

In the excellent Last Night at the Halfmoon (4.5), about change and the difficulties that come with it, Kate Austin returns to the Sunshine Coast north of Vancouver. Aimee Anouk King has a wonderful 11-year-old son, the perfect ex-husband, a successful career as a potter and great parents. When she finds out the Halfmoon Drive-In is closing, she's crushed. The most important events of
her life took place there. Now her son has become difficult, her father has a secret, she has a large order due and her ex-husband, about whom she has ambiguous feelings, is coming to stay for the summer. Was she deluding herself about her perfect life? Woven into this fun, compelling story are themes from the movies Aimee has seen over the years.
