Movie Summary

Director:
Lasse Hallström
Released:
2006
Rating:
PG-13
From the acclaimed director of CASANOVA, CHOCOLAT, and THE CIDER HOUSE RULES ... Academy Award winners Robert Redford (Best Director, ORDINARY PEOPLE, 1980) and Morgan Freeman (Best Supporting Actor, MILLION DOLLAR BABY, 2004) star in this powerful story of risk and redemption. Stoic and heartbroken, Einar Gilkyson (Redford) quietly lives in the rugged Wyoming ranchlands alongside his only trusted friend, Mitch Bradley (Freeman). Then, suddenly, the woman he blames for the death of his only son arrives at his door broke, desperate, and with a granddaughter he's never known. But even as buried anger and accusations resurface, the way is opened for unexpected connection, adventure, and forgiveness. Also starring Jennifer Lopez (SHALL WE DANCE?) and Josh Lucas (SWEET HOME ALABAMA, GLORY ROAD).

Metacritic Score

  • 60

    Variety

    A film is in trouble when, despite the presence of an A-list cast and a well-regarded director, the best thing in it is a partly digitized bear.

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    It's an acceptable film, but the story of family ties and forgiveness simply cannot manage the emotional connections it is desperate for.

  • 30

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    Solemn, sentimental bore of a movie that suffocates in its own predictability and watered-down psychobabble.
