A lovely, delicately told human story,
This review is from: An Unfinished Life [DVD] (DVD)
A lovely, gentle film about the tensions brought about by family and by history. Robert Redford is a grumpy grandpa still grieving for the loss of his son. Jennifer Lopez is excellent as his former daughter-in-law and Morgan Freeman plays Reford's close friend confined to bed having been attacked by a bear.
It says much for the cinematography and the simple, yet absorbing storyline that these 3 + the excellent performance by the young grand-daughter hold the attention for the best part of 2 hours. An antidote to fast moving, big budget action movies. Utterly charming.
