Blue Car, starring David Strathairn and Agnes Bruckner, premiered at The 2002 Sundance Film Festival where it was acquired by Miramax Films. After screening at festivals around the world, including Toronto, Deauville, Montreal, and London Blue Car, opened to widespread critical acclaim. Soon after, Moncrieff was chosen as one of Variety's 10 Screenwriter's to Watch, and Blue Car went on to garner two Spirit Award nominations including Best First Screenplay.

It premiered at the AFI (American Film Institute) film festival in 2006 and went on to win the Grand Prix at Deauville in 2007.
