Unfinished Life, An
Source: Catholic News Service
Captivating story of embittered Wyoming rancher (Robert Redford in a career peak) -- caregiver to a ranch hand (Morgan Freeman) badly mauled by a bear -- who gives shelter to his son's widow (Jennifer Lopez) and the 11-year-old granddaughter (Becca Gardner) he never knew he had, when the woman flees her abusive boyfriend. Director Lasse Hallstrom's film, though not devoid of cliches, is sensitively acted, ravishingly photographed and vividly conveys an admirable message about forgiveness and letting go of the past. Despite profanity, rough language and irreligious remarks (courtesy of Redford's salty but basically honorable character), some brief episodes of domestic violence and implied premarital sex, the film is uplifting entertainment for adults and mature adolescents. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
