An Unfinished Life - September 2005

Another character study in "An Unfinished Life." The still charismatic Robert Redford, the talented Jennifer Lopez (hype notwithstanding) and Morgan Freeman (in the role that henceforth must be described as “The Morgan Freeman Role”) combining to make a quiet but effective movie about real and chosen families.

When Lopez’s character leaves an abusive boyfriend, she stirs up a small Wyoming town in ways no one could have foreseen. Those most affected include Redford, playing her deceased husband’s father, a handsome Deputy Sheriff and a brown bear. Yes, a bear! Not a real high octane flick, but very good.
