Two Moon Junction is a 1988 American English language erotic thriller and romance film written and directed by Zalman King, starring Sherilyn Fenn and Richard Tyson.[1] The original music score is composed by Jonathan Elias.

The film is noted for the final film appearances of Burl Ives and Hervé Villechaize, as well as the theatrical film debut of Milla Jovovich.

Plot[edit]

April Delongpre (Sherilyn Fenn) is the well-born daughter of a powerful Alabama senator and heiress to an old and respectable Southern family. One summer, while her fiancé Chad Douglas Fairchild (Martin Hewitt) is away on business, April commences an affair with Perry (Richard Tyson), a carnival roustabout she had met a few days previously.

April's grandmother Belle Delongpre (Louise Fletcher) has assigned the local sheriff Earl Hawkins (Burl Ives) to keep an eye on her. Belle and the sheriff conspire to get rid of Perry on the day of April and Chad's wedding. Perry escapes, and the film ends with April, wearing Chad's wedding band and nothing else (in a shower), appearing in Perry's shower in a new location, ready for his return from work; they kiss.
